The Buellton Union School District is planning sexual harassment prevention training after an investigation of a complaint made by a teacher about the former superintendent.
Tom Cooper resigned from his position of superintendent on July 18, which was approved on the 27th. The president of the Buellton school board, Joyce Azevedo, could not comment on why Cooper no longer works for the district, but said he left for "personal reasons".
When asked about her reaction to the complaint, Azevedo said, "He probably should not have made such comments, and the district recognizes that."
The complaint was made by a teacher at the Oak Valley Elementary School in Buellton. Among the list of allegations is a statement to put birth control next to the water in the employee lounge, directed toward pregnant teachers.
As a result of the complaint, the school district will have sexual harassment prevention training for all personnel during the fall.
We spoke Monday with the husband of the female teacher who made the complaint at a school board meeting. He said they both are not ready to make a comment on the incident.
