Sexual Harassment and Broken Salary Promises at Heritage Elementary Charter School
Two former teachers at Heritage Elementary Charter School in Glendale charged the school’s principal and vice principal with sexual harassment. If the charges are true, the incidents go far beyond provocative language and unwanted contact. One of the former teachers said the principal raped her.
In a separate issue, twenty or more teachers who left Heritage Elementary at the end of the year said the school refused to pay them their merit pay bonuses because they left. The school acknowledged the claim, then reversed itself and paid the teachers.
