Saddleback High School Covering Up Sex Crimes by Teacher's Aides?

tshirt_style2.jpgThis past Monday, a teacher's aide by the name of Alonso Manuel Gonzalez was arrested by SanTana police and released on bail. The Orange County Sheriff's website no longer lists why folks get thrown in the pokey, but the Orange County Superior Court website shows Gonzalez was arrested for a"lewd act with dependant adult by caretaker."

Sources tell the Weekly Gonzalez works at Saddleback High School in SanTana and that he works primarily with disabled students--and that school officials are trying to keep Gonzalez's arrest under wraps from parents and the media. "We were told in a meeting that none of us should talk about [the incident and arrest], to not discuss it with anyone," says a Saddleback teacher who requested anonymity.

The Weekly called Saddleback High's main number (714-513-2900) and asked if a school employee had been arrested. "No," whoever picked up the phone sternly responded. She quickly added that even if something like that had happened, she was not at liberty to discuss personnel matters. When the lady asked who had told me about the arrest, I responded that a student had alerted me to it. "You know how students blow up stories," she snorted.

But when I asked if an incident involving a teacher's assistant indecently exposing himself to a student had occurred, the woman acknowledged this, but quickly added "at this point, it's only an allegation." She confirmed that parents were not notified of the "allegation."

To recap Saddleback's story: no arrest has been made of a school employee, it's none of our business, kids exaggerate, a sex crime DID happen, but since it's just hearsay, parents don't need to know. Is the SanTana Unified School District now under the direct governance of the Diocese of Orange? Sick, just sick. Much, much more on this story next week...

If they cover the SAUSD Food Service Dept....why not cover other things...

FOR CYA..all of the following is allegedly: Mark Chavez(SAUSD Food Director) internal protectors or political favors are showing there true colors again,on Edjoin (a website for district jobs) posted MORE FOOD SERVICE MANAGEMENT JOBS… Geez..I wonder if this job is 4 Mark’s little behind the scenes little worker that even writes ups his business plans…???? Allegedly, Mark Chavez created a job as a Dept. Specialist that was already promised to a person named Viet who does all of Mark’s business plans, orgnizational charts, etc….ALLEGEDLY!!!! Unfortunately, Mark Chavez is allowed to promise jobs to people based on his..I am sure tremendous expirience…must be that Hamburger College everyone keeps referring too…oh wait, have to say allegedly… WHY doesn’t the District or HR address the TRUE issue here which is Chavez lack of leadership and knowledge. Allegedly hundreds of thousand dollars(taxpayers) are spent on outside food service consultants to assist Mark Chavez.. WHY pay Mark Chavez over 100k salary if he needs consultant for almost every step..Mark Chavez has been the leader of the food service dept.. for OVER ONE year now..And its still in disarray and the lame excuse of ” I inherited this problem ” is very old NOW… We are hoping that the NEW ASST> DIRECTOR that clearly has MORE knowledge & EXPIRIENCE than MR. MARK CHAVEZ will soon take the role of food service director..much like when Mark Chavez came and it was all part of a plan when they removed Jan…just our opinion..and as much as we did not like her style…she was WAY BETTER than Mark Chavez..and 4sure had more expirience… SAUSD might of fooled the state…it’s being kept under a very tight lid..but U cant fool us!!! Address the food service director.
