SAN JOSE, Calif. — Details have emerged about an incident last week in which a registered sex offender was allowed on a school bus, KGO reports.
During a field trip to a college, a teacher offered a wheelchair-bound woman and her male companion a ride on the bus. East Side Union High School District Superintendent Chris Funk told the news outlet that the woman was the parent of one of the students. She and her companion did not ride over to the college on the bus, but they found themselves without a ride back, and they requested a ride on the bus.
It turned out that the woman’s male companion is a registered sex offender. The district’s and the police’s investigations have determined that he sat at the front of the bus, away from any students, and police say that it doesn’t appear that any crime was committed, but a school policy was violated.
Funk told the news outlet that he was “extremely disappointed and sad, and a little upset that this actually happened, this breach of our policy by one of our staff members.”
