Two teachers at Olympic Heights High School are no longer employed by the district this week after it was discovered that they were involved in some sort of sexual activity with one another on campus during school hours, district officials confirmed Thursday.
The school’s principal David Clark notified parents Thursday afternoon in a recorded message that the teachers were “engaged in an inappropriate physical relationship while on the school’s campus.”
The message said the conduct is “unacceptable” and is a serious violation of the district’s code of conduct.
Both teachers were relative newcomers to the school.
William Barham, 45, was hired a year ago in February to work at the school’s Junior ROTC program, according to district records. Those records indicate Laura Field, 28, a vocational teacher, arrived when the new school year began in August.
Barham was told he was fired this week, his last day was Tuesday. Field resigned Monday. The investigation is ongoing, a district spokeswoman said Thursday.
