Letter from Adam Clark, Superintendent of the Mt. Diablo Unified School District:
May 5, 2022
Dear MDUSD Parents and Staff:
I am writing to inform you that Mt. Diablo Unified School District Administration was informed today (Thursday) by Concord Police that (name withheld due to early stages of investigation), a teacher who has previously taught at Pine Hollow Middle School, has been arrested on suspicion of multiple felony and misdemeanor counts related to inappropriate acts with minors.
Mt. Diablo Unified School District continues to be committed to providing a safe learning environment for all students. This commitment requires us to aways look for the best employees we can find, and to immediately separate from those who we determine should not be on our school sites or near our students.
In March, the District learned about complaints from students regarding Mr. X. Based on the content of the complaints, the District and school principal decided to immediately investigate. The teacher was removed from the classroom (all MDUSD sites) at that time and placed on administrative leave during the investigation.
Teacher X has not been allowed to return to teaching at the school during the District and law enforcement investigations. The District has already taken action toward permanent separation of the teacher’s contract.
Please know that Mt. Diablo Unified School District will continue to do everything we can to provide a safe learning environment for all students, and we appreciate the quick response by law enforcement in this matter, as well as the students who have provided information. The District is cooperating with law enforcement authorities to the fullest extent permitted by law. If you have any relevant information to share about this case, please contact Detective Demott of the Concord Police Department at (925) 603-5851. Additional information will be shared as appropriate or as necessary, but we cannot release any more details at this time.
Adam Clark, Ed.D
Superintendent, Mt. Diablo Unified School District
