The Simi Valley Unified School District sent out a press release with some details of their actions with regards to the teacher that was arrested by police for robbing a 7-11. Click on continue reading for the press release.
I was sent this press release that was also sent to The Star and The Acorn. I am not sure why they didn't publish it.
The Simi Valley School District can do a much better job at communication. When they fail to communicate rumors spread. Institutions haven't been known to hide good news from the public.
Simi Valley has recently hired two new top level administrators. They deserve a chance to show how they will improve the school district and make needed changes.
To improve our community improve our schools. I will be requesting interviews with all candidates running for school board.
(Note: I am a teacher in Simi Valley.)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Simi Valley Unified School District has received several inquiries concerning the employment status of David Considine, a former teacher for the Simi Valley Unified School District. As has been previously stated by the District, the details of personnel matters are confidential. However, certain public information is available that may now be released by the District.
Mr. Considine was previously charged with criminal offenses including second degree robbery, use of a deadly weapon and possession of a smoking device. The charges did not involve the District or our students. During the pendency of the criminal proceedings, Mr. Considine was on an unpaid leave of absence pending resolution of his criminal matters. He has since resigned his employment and is no longer employed by the District. Public records show that Mr. Considine's original preliminary hearing in his criminal matter was set for June 12, 2012. Current public information shows that on July 12, 2012, his pending criminal matter was transferred to courtroom 24 for preliminary examination resetting.
The District believes that this information should be helpful to those who have made inquiries and will serve to clarify the employment status of Mr. Considine since the time of his arrest.
