Press release

Sacramento City Unified School District moved quickly this morning to remove a Woodbine Elementary School preschool program employee from campus in response to allegations of inappropriate conduct.

District officials placed the employee on administrative leave immediately after learning of allegations of inappropriate conduct with a student and a pending police investigation. The district is working closely with police on the investigation.

“The safety and security of our students is our top concern,” said Superintendent Jonathan Raymond. “We will not tolerate any behavior that risks the safety of kids.” Superintendent Raymond also noted that if the allegations are proven true, the district will take the strongest possible action against the employee.

The district notified Woodbine families and staff about the incident today (Wednesday, October 26). Principal Scott Oltmanns used the district’s automated telephone-dialing system to call families and sent a letter home with all students.
