California (The Gaslamp Post) – School board officials for the Oxnard School district were shocked to learn from students and staff, that a teacher at one of their schools was involved in hardcore pornography.  They were even more shocked when they held a meeting, and not one parent with a child at that school had showed up.  School board officials said that they held the meeting last Wednesday, and were hoping to address and concerns that parents may have had.

The school placed the teacher, now identified as 30-year-old, Stacie Halas, on paid leave over concerns that she had starred in a pornographic video, as actress “Tiffany Six.”.  She is a Science teacher at the Haydock Intermediate School.  She is not believed to be facing any criminal charges.

UPDATE 4/19/2012 – The Oxnard School District has decided to let Ms. Stacie Halas, science teacher at the Richard B. Haydock intermediate school go.  The school board voted unanimously Wednesday, to terminate the female teacher, after it was discovered that she was moonlighting as a hard-core pornography actress.

It was reported that it was the students who had first approached school officials, after some kids had found Ms. Halas online, acting in a porno film.  Due to the school’s computer filters, officials were unable to verify the rumor, but sent a precautionary notice to parents, cautioning them to be vigilant with their children’s internet activity.

After a video was obtained using a staff member’s cell phone, it was decided that Ms. Halas would be placed on leave, pending a school board decision.

She was let go after the board decided that she posed a distraction, based on her voluntary and well-known, extra curricular, activities.  “If she were to return to the school district, it would be a disruption,” Superintendent Jeff Chancer said in an interview with KTLA-TV.  She has 30 days to appeal her termination, but has not been able to be reached for comment.

UPDATE 1/16/2013 – The appeal attempt at getting Ms. Halas reinstated at her former teaching position at Oxnard School District’s Richard B. Haydock intermediate school has failed.  Both Halas and her attorney were hoping to get the decision to let her go overturned, as well as set a precedent for others hoping that they could leave a bad something-or-other behind them, and be able to move on with their lives.

Unfortunately for Halas, a three-panel commission of judges decided unanimously to uphold her dismissal.  Judge Julie Cabos-Owen noted that in an age of technology, her past decisions won’t simply go away.

“Although her pornography career has concluded, the ongoing availability of her pornographic materials on the Internet will continue to impede her from being an effective teacher and respected colleague,” Cabos-Owen said in the 46-page decision issued Friday by the Commission on Professional Competence.

Halas, 32, was continually deceitful about her nine-month career in porn before she went to work at the school, the judges said.
