Covina-Valley Schools Chief Is Under Investigation For Misconduct Involving Students
Covina-Valley Unified School District Superintendent Richard Sheehan is being investigated for "misconduct involving three potential victims," the Covina Police Department confirmed today.
According to a department statement:
"These three victims are former and current students of CVUSD. The investigations are in their very preliminary stages."
The Covina police statement said the nearby Glendora Police Department is "handling this initial investigation." The email sent Tuesday afternoon said the district is "working closely" with the Glendora police. The Glendora Police Department did not respond to a request for comment.
The Covina-Valley school board convened a special meeeting on Monday to discuss Sheehan's case. After a closed session, the board said it had decided "to postpone making any decision in respect to Dr. Sheehan's employment in light of the developing allegations and evidence that's been brought to our attention."
After a second closed session during its regularly scheduled meeting, the school board voted unanimously to appoint Elizabeth Eminhizer as acting superintendent effective immediately.
