Alisal, being sued by teachers left and right

This is another one of the stories I'll get to eventually.

Alisal Union School District employee Liz Nájera Ramirez has filed a claim against the district alleging sexual harassment by Jesus Lepe, principal at Frank Paul Elementary. A few days ago, before the Alisal Board went into closed session, Nájera Ramirez accused Trustee Lilia Cortez Garza of lying to a newspaper by saying she didn't know anything about her claim.

Like all trustees, Cortez Garza is informed during closed session of all legal claims against the district.

Nájera Ramirez goes on to make pretty severe accusations against Lepe, who's also running for school board in Greenfield Union Elementary School District. This is not the first time I hear of these allegations, and apparently, there are two claims against Lepe filed with the district.

My editor filed a public records request to obtain the claims, but so far, we have not received response from the Alisal.

You can watch Nájera Ramirez make her accusations here.

It's not surprising to see the Alisal once again return to the spotlight, given its history. But I think the elections have ratcheted up the overall level of nastiness. 

It'll be interesting to see who wins the election. Stay tuned.
