In Partnership with The 74

Ex-Miramonte Principal Martin Sandoval Was Reassigned To El Sereno Elementary School

Martin Sandoval was the principal of Miramonte Elementary last year during the horrific sexual abuse scandal that included teacher Mark Berndt. As Scott Johnson notes on the blog Mayor Sam, Sandoval was reassigned to Sierra Park Elementary in El Sereno. Johnson spotted this angry Facebook post from a Sierra Park parent:

Friends i am horrified…Superintendent Deasy…SHAME ON U..Some1 please tell me it isnt so..my son attends Sierra Park Elem.. Well we had the pleasure of welcoming a new principal interestingly enough it was the same principal from Miramonte elementary school..Martin Sandoval..Sure dump him off in El Sereno..Surely no1 in El Sereno has axcess to newspaper, internet or tv..tHANK gOD he was removed after four days and the LAUSD barely made it public today after the fact.

I just spoke with someone at the school, who told to me that Sandoval’s last day was Friday and that his leaving was “his decision.” He is still listed as the school’s principal on the LAUSD website.
