Haydock Intermediate School officials released a statement saying the teacher, whose name is being withheld, is not facing criminal charges -- but that the school considers the activity to be inappropriate.
“It has been alleged that one of our teachers is depicted in at least one pornographic video and possibly others on the internet…These sites contain extremely graphic and inappropriate pornographic material.”
KTLA-TV reports that officials were alerted when students showed administrators a pornographic video allegedly starring the teacher.
"These allegations do not involve any Oxnard School District students," the school's statement says, according to KTLA. "We are asking teachers to discourage the children from searching for and/or visiting these inappropriate sites. We ask that you be particularly vigilant over the next few days with respect to the Internet content being accessed by your child on his or her telephone or other Internet-ready devices."
Superintendent Jeff Chancer told the Ventura County Star his main worry -- other than students trying to search for videos of the teacher -- is that it will disrupt productivity.
"My biggest concern right now is the effect it will have on the learning of our children that we serve," Chancer told the paper.
Gerardo Sanchez, father of a 13-year-old student at the school, told KCAL-TV that he can't believe this is happening at his child's school.
“School is supposed to be a safe place," he told the station. "Now, you think twice because you never know what is going to happen."
