Concord Teacher Arrested On Suspicion Of Child Molestation Charges


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


  1. A sad and tragic episode on so many levels. Every time something like this is reported, I count my blessings that I was able to secure a California public education pre-Proposition 13……

    • I don’t think proposition 13 is to blame. Most homes have turned over ownership several times in the last few decades and have been reassessed at the much higher value. We seem to blame everything on it. And we hear how struggling education is in California. But wasn’t the lottery supposed to take care of all of that?
      I think we need to go back to the fundamentals as they taught me back in the 60s in public school. Which was reading writing and arithmetic with good doses of History and civil behavior.
      Schools now seem more concerned with teaching radical views and 1001 ways to have sex

      • Point well taken regarding passage of time and reassessment of home values. The Prop 13 reference was not a fiscal comment, but a reference to time frame.

        That being said, the combination of higher property taxes and “windfall” from the California Lottery proceeds have not curbed the decline the Golden State public education platform. The 3 R’s were a staple in our days, and it probably would not hurt to establish some solid foundational skills and values with our students. Whether the education folks can teach them and if the pupils can learn them are different issues all together.

        Someone please provide specific and detailed reference wherein CRT is a current piece of the curriculum being taught.

      • Greg, The lottery was never designed to solve funding problems so you can stop with that nonsense/lie. Homes in Lamorinda have not turned over at a significant rate. Did you know that the state has to pour in money to fund education in Lamorinda at the K-8 level? Yep, Lamorindans don’t pay enough in property taxes to meet the state’s required minimum funding level.
