California School Board Votes To Fire Science Teacher Who Appeared In X-Rated Videos
Officials with the Oxnard school district announced that they had canned Stacie Halas, who taught science at Richard B. Haydock Intermediate School. Halas, 31, filmed the X-rated videos before her employment at the school, where she was placed on leave last month.
School administrators began probing Halas’s porn past after students discovered explicit clips of her online. As seen in the below grid of photos, Halas appeared in a variety of adult videos.
While not commenting on the propriety of Halas’s appearance in porn flicks, Oxnard school officials noted that they were concerned about the disruption it would cause were she to return to the classroom.
Halas, who was not present for last night’s meeting, has 30 days to appeal the board’s ruling.
Sasha Grey Reading: Ex-Porn Star’s California Elementary School Appearance Prompts Review
COMPTON, Calif. — Officials of a California school system plan to meet with the agent who schedules celebrity guests to read to children after some parents complained that having a former adult film star as a participant was inappropriate.
A Compton Unified School District statement says the outside talent coordinator listed Sasha Grey as an actress who had appeared in the HBO show “Entourage” when she was proposed as a participant in the Guest Reading Program at Emerson Elementary School this month. Grey’s previous experience in adult films wasn’t mentioned.
The district says it will review the selection process with the coordinator to avoid any potentially controversial readers in the future.
The district clarified that the Guest Reading Program is not associated with the National Education Association’s annual March event Read Across America.
