A mother and her three children were left “very upset” by a teacher’s dismissal from a Mayport elementary school in California, but now the family says they are considering legal action.MECCA’s parent council called for a meeting on Wednesday to discuss the dismissal of teacher and school staff member Kimberly DeMarco, who was also placed on leave.
The council also said it was concerned about other teachers who were also placed in the firing line.
Mecca, a high school, elementary and middle school, is a community of about 1,400 people in the San Fernando Valley.
The school district has not commented on the incident.
“It’s upsetting, it’s hard to imagine,” said Lisa Salles, who works at a nearby business, where DeMarco was the assistant principal.
“It’s just a matter of the circumstances.”
“I think she was just doing her job and that’s all.
The community is really upset,” Sallies added.”
We’ve had a lot of staff in our district that have been with us for a long time, so I don’t think they’re just leaving to do something else.
They’re actually here, they’re here to help us.
I think that’s just one of those things that we’ve never had before.”
A spokesman for the Los Angeles Unified School District said he was unable to comment on the specifics of the case.
“The district has zero tolerance for discrimination, harassment and retaliation of any kind,” said John Miller in a statement.
“The district takes all allegations of discrimination seriously and is committed to a culture that respects everyone’s right to seek employment and education.
Salles said the situation is “pretty sad” and she has yet to speak with her daughter, who she said has a “great heart.”””
We have zero tolerance to any form of discrimination of any type and we are committed to treating all employees fairly and fairly with respect.”
Salles said the situation is “pretty sad” and she has yet to speak with her daughter, who she said has a “great heart.”
“My whole family is upset,” she said.
“I’ve been here 20 years and I’ve never experienced anything like this.”
She said the family is not going to press for any kind of formal legal action because they are hoping for a quick resolution.
“My whole goal is just for them to get out, get some counseling, get the support and get on with their lives.”
“We’re not going anywhere,” she added.
“This is a terrible situation that we have to deal with and this was just one that we had to deal.”
DeMarco has worked as an elementary school teacher in the Mayport area for almost 20 years, but her employment status is currently unclear.
She is currently on administrative leave and will not be returning to the classroom until after her next class.
The Los Angeles County School District has also not commented.
The Mayport district is one of several districts in the Los Feliz region where school districts have been accused of mishandling disciplinary cases.
Schools in California and California’s other Southern states, including Southern California, have been rocked by the alleged mistreatment of students who were allegedly sexually assaulted.
In November, the Southern California District Attorney’s Office announced a settlement with a former teacher who was charged with sexually assaulting a student at a Los Angeles public high school.
In May, a federal judge ordered Los Angeles to pay nearly $4.5 million to a student who was raped by her former teacher at the city’s Los Felises Unified School district.
