VICTORVILLE • Five months after officials placed two Victor Valley High School employees on paid leave amid an alleged sex scandal, one of those employees has voluntarily resigned and the second remains on paid leave, according to school officials.

The Victor Valley Union High School District placed the two high school employees on paid leave in late March, after rumors the employees were caught by students having sex in an empty classroom. The Daily Press had learned about the allegations that triggered the investigation through multiple anonymous phone calls and e-mails, as well as students who said the campus was buzzing about the alleged scandal.

As of Monday, the district had paid the independent firm Titan Group roughly $4,600 to investigate the situation, according to Herb Calderon, assistant superintendent of business services.

District officials would not provide any more details, citing personnel confidentiality. Officials have said the employees were initially placed on leave for “their own protection” and did not pose a danger to students.
