Porn star teacher on leave

Oxnard - Students' claims that a US teacher had another job as a porn star were initially dismissed after school officials said they couldn't find images of her on the internet. The investigation was quickly restarted when the officials realised the school computer system blocked access to sex sites.
"I saw parts of the video," Oxnard School District Superintendent Jeff Chancer said Wednesday. "It's hard core pornography."
The teacher at Richard B Haydock Intermediate School in California was placed on paid administrative leave on Monday. Her name was not released, but a school site administrator believes she's the one seen in the video, Chancer said.
Officials said no district students were seen in the video.
On Tuesday, the district sent a letter to parents of students asking that their children not search internet sex sites for the teacher's image.
"It has been alleged that one of our teachers is depicted in at least one pornographic video and possibly others on the internet," Chancer said in the letter.
Chancer wouldn't say if the teacher acknowledged or denied it was her image on the video.
Chancer said the California Education Code outlines employment conditions that could lead to her being disciplined or fired.
"We're trying to determine if there's a nexus on what she does on her own time and what she does in the classroom," he said.
The Oxnard Police Department was notified, but spokesperson Monica Munoz said there is no criminal investigation.
