Employee at Sacramento high school placed on leave after ‘inappropriate conduct’ at another job

A John F. Kennedy High School administrator who engaged in “inappropriate conduct” while working for another employer was placed on leave, according to the Sacramento City Unified School District.

Principal Reginald Brown said in a letter to parents that he learned last week “allegations” levied against the staff member. It’s unclear if the employee was a teacher or worked as support staff, but Brown said the conduct does not involve students or the administrator’s work at the Greenhaven neighborhood campus.

Brown said he “immediately” told SCUSD’s human resources department “given the seriousness of the claims” lodged against the worker.

“I cannot provide additional details due to strict laws regarding privacy rights, but I assure you that all staff must be vetted through our background screening and cleared, and the same is true for this individual,” Brown said.
