WCCUSD employee arrested, December 17, 2021

Español

Dear WCCUSD Community:

We are aware of recent arrest and felony charges filed against one of the District’s student support specialists. We are disappointed to learn of these charges as we expect our employees to be professional and ethical in their interactions with students, other employees, and the community. The District is cooperating fully with law enforcement as the judicial process moves forward. Law enforcement informed us that no current or former WCCUSD students are victims in this case.

In accordance with District protocol, the support specialist has been put on leave. Although as a District practice we do not comment on the specifics of criminal matters, we want to assure you that we take very seriously any allegations of employee misconduct, especially those involving young people.

Sincerely,

Dr. Kenneth Chris Hurst
Superintendent
