HARBOR CITY, Calif. (KTLA) — Former Miramonte Elementary School principal Martin Sandoval met with parents Thursday at his new post at President Avenue Elementary.

harbor-city-elementarySandoval was the principal at Miramonte in 2012 when teacher Mark Berndt was arrested for alleged lewd acts with 23 boys and girls.

For the past year, Sandoval worked as a director at the North East Service Center.

There were concerns from some parents about his handling of the sex scandal.

But in a statement, the district supported Sandoval’s actions stating he “acted quickly when he had information about alleged misconduct to protect the children.”
