Teachers move back to Miramonte School

View Comments

(AP) – Most of the teachers who were taken out of a Los Angeles elementary school where two colleagues were arrested on lewdness charges earlier this year are back in their classrooms.

Los Angeles Unified School District spokeswoman Monica Carazo says 43 of the original teaching staff of 76 returned to Miramonte Elementary School on Tuesday as the new school year got under way. She says the rest of the teachers went to a new school that opened nearby to relieve overcrowding at Miramonte and several retired.

The new school absorbed about 500 children from Miramonte, which had housed 1,500 pupils on a staggered, year-round schedule. The enrollment reduction also reduced staffing needs.

The district temporarily removed the teachers from Miramonte in order to conduct an internal investigation.
