This is incredible that an AP would "pop" students' toes. That has pervert written all over it. Why would the district want to keep someone like that while getting rid of good teachers via Professional Standards?

Maybe Linda Kipley wants her toes popped by that guy! They are probably all a bunch of perverts in administration!

lee you do remember that this is the second or the third time that the child abuse investigations of dcf have been handed over to the sheriff's dept, correct? The first time they spent eleven million and then the sheriff said he could not do the investigations for that amount. THE SECOND TIME that dcf moved under the sheriff's mantle was more recently... to the tune of fifteen million or so. It's all from the tampa trib what I am telling you. THEN they moved over all the same DCF investigators. I ask you ... what cost TWENTY SIX MILLION DOLLARS and is only under the sheriff's issue so that they can perform these cover ups before things get out of hand for their buddies?
love, vox
(some smart alek had my blog disabled so ... I think it was eric deggans at the stpete times... but I've complained so we'll see what's what.)

Can the DOE be petitioned to take away his license?

I cannot believe that any sane person can read this and think this is fine.

Where to start?
Asking people to take off clothes - sexual harassment.
Touching - battery.

The SAO could not find one charge? Do you know if Ober & Co. could look at this again the same way they reopened the case against the high schooler / homeless woman collision?

SDHC dosen't see a problem with regularly taking students behind closed doors. One child was programmed to take off his shoe! How about the ABUSE of authority to tell children to take off clothes in order to fondle feet?

His own admission of it being "playful" is disgusting.
