With the details of the investigation of Pico Rivera teacher Gregory Salcido now divulged, what does it mean for his appeal?

Apr 24, 2018 by

After the El Rancho Unified School District took the unusual move last week to release its investigative report into former teacher Gregory Salcido’s conduct, which led to his ouster, the question stands: Could he possibly keep his job?

While the former El Rancho High history and government teacher made national headlines after recordings of his in-class, anti-military rant went viral, the report laid out a litany of other on-the-job allegations. Among them were charges Salcido had deleted photos of nude women from his work computer, used racial slurs and bullied students.

The report also cited past misconduct, including a 2010 case in which he allegedly threatened a student and was placed on leave, as well as a 2012 case in which he hit a student.

Salcido declined to comment for this story, pointing to an earlier statement that he said “remains relevant.” In that statement, Salcido said, “My pending appeal to the state serves as a clear indication of my disagreement with the motivation, method, and contents of the district’s investigation.”

Technically, Salcido remains on unpaid leave with the district throughout the appeal process. The question of whether he will be able to return to his El Rancho High classroom is now in the hands of the state’s Office of Administrative Hearings.
