Presentation High Teachers on Leave Following Allegations Made By Students

Presentation High School administrators in a letter sent to parents said two teachers are on leave while authorities investigate allegations made by students.

Administrators at the San Jose Catholic high school for girls do not reveal what the allegations are in the e-mail letter, but the NBC Bay Area Investigative Unit has uncovered numerous accusations of improper sexual misconduct by at least four former and current teachers involving students dating back as far as 25 years.

The announcement states one allegation comes from a former student about an incident that happened more than five years ago after she had graduated from Presentation High. The administration said they have reported the allegation to police.

The second teacher is being investigated for an incident the school said happened 14 months ago. The incident was already being investigated, but now administrators said new questions have been raised.
