School district officials spent two days investigating the teacher’s alleged actions and classroom environment. https://t.co/ZWVcnIveRK— The Sacramento Bee (@sacbee_news) September 2, 2021
“From the evidence gathered so far, the teacher violated the district’s political action guidelines which are aligned with Board Policy and California Education Code,” read a letter from Evans. “For example, in addition to inappropriate statements from the video, the teacher posted a sign supporting a personal decision for at least (a) local political issue, and possibly more.”
The guidelines the teacher allegedly violated prohibit staff from distributing materials that advocate for or against a ballot measure; conducting political campaigns during work hours or in an instructional setting; using district funds or staff time for political campaign activity; or encouraging or discouraging political activity.
