Jose Rosario Alvarez, LAUSD Athletic Assistant At Poly Tech High School, Arrested For Inappropriate Relationship

An athletic assistant at Poly Tech High School has been arrested for an alleged inappropriate relationship with a high school student.

Jose Rosario Alvarez, who is employed by Los Angeles Unified, is accused of having unlawful sex with a 16-year-old who goes to another school in the district.

The Los Angeles Police Department received information about the relationship on February 22 and found that the two had inappropriate contact both over the internet and in person.

Alvarez was booked for unlawful sex with a minor and is being held on $20,000 bail.

The school district has said that Alvarez will not have any more contact with students while the investigation is pending.

In response to the rash of teachers that have been arrested or reported for sexual misconduct, schools superintendent John Deasy has ordered that all reports of teacher misconduct from the past 4 years be submitted or re-submitted to the state credentialing commission, reports the Los Angeles Times.
