THE SRV EXPOSITOR

This page remains under construction. SRVUSD's record of nonfeasance, misfeasance, and sometimes malfeasance over the years is extensive, so compiling and then posting segments of that record continues. Make sure to update/reload this page in every visit. An ARCHIVE of numerous SRVUSD scandals over the last 30 years or more is intended for eventual addition.
From grossly inappropriate curricula, to mismanagement and neglect of facilities, to public deceit regarding financial condition and subsequent staff raises, to attempting to win a bond measure with illegal ballots, to behind-scenes dealings with shameful and shameless individuals, to the careful hiding of similar-school API scores of only 5.6 or 5.7 out of 10, to concealment of classroom and club activities, to the tragic drowning death of a student during a physical education class, to the defamation of a student-council president and later of a girls stunt team, now to the hiring of a biology teacher who'd previously been arrested for soliciting prostitution on Oakland: SRVUSD has been neck-deep in scandal for decades. Those stories will be presented here.
First up: the scandal which ended the 2021-2022 school year — the superintendent's amplifying of a crudely fabricated social media post which falsely impugned the Cal High Cheer-Stunt Team as "racists." Mr. Malloy's title for his District-wide letter last May: "Cal High Racist Incident 5.23.22."
Perhaps it is now time for the SRVUSD Board and Superintendent Malloy to reverse their 2021 adoption of Stamped: Racism, Anti-Racism, and You as a 7th grade textbook. That adoption occurred despite the book's numerous problems, including the author's misrepresentation of crime and incarceration-rate correlations and (especially) his recommendation of "NW.A." and their celebration of thug-rapist criminal behavior in Straight Outta Compton as a source of "change and empowerment."

Next: The Tragic 2018 Loss of Ben Curry (Drowning in SRV High School P.E. class, SRVUSD liability settled for $8 Million in 2020)
After those terrible stories: SRVUSD employee [at John Baldwin] charged with possessing child porn (Aug. 26, 2022)
And now: "San Ramon Valley teacher, cheer coach charged with sexual misconduct against minors" (Sept. 16, 2022)
Also (another story on the cheer coach): East Bay Times and KRON4 (Both Sept. 16, 2022)
Follow-up: Danville teacher, cheer coach hired despite criminal background including prostitution sting (Sept.20, 2022)
Additional Follow-Up: "Danville students warned administrators about inappropriate behavior by teacher now facing child molestation charges, new records show" (Nov. 20, 2022)
SRVUSD Loses Records: "Some records missing in molestation case against teacher" (Jan. 28, 2023)
Former SRV H.S. Asst. Principal, now a middle school principal in Lafayette School District, is placed on leave (Jan. 30, 2023)
The Latest SRVUSD Scandal — Pornography in High School Libraries: The Engine of Matt Todd exposes a parent's complaint regarding a San Ramon Valley High School 14-year-old student who refused to write an assigned review of
the porno graphic novel Gender Queer and reportedly received a grade of zero due to that refusal.
Another pornographic book in high school libraries here is Lawn Boy, by a Jonathan Evison, reviewed here.
Still another is This Book Is Gay, an extraordinarily and dangerously perverse how-to manual of sorts for participation in homosexual activity (in particular). Even a review of this book is too filthy for inclusion here.
Long and short, those responsible for making such porn available to high school students should in fact not be permitted anywhere close to schools. They smell like groomers.
