Parents are demanding answers Thursday after the LAPD launched an investigation into an employee suspected of misconduct at yet another  LAUSD school.

This time it involves a teacher at Alta Loma Elementary.

“My daughter says he asked her to scratch his leg and so she did – I told her you don’t touch him and he doesn’t touch you – that’s When she said well at least I got some cookies for it,” parent Paula Reyes.

That’s when this mother says she quickly pulled her daughter from the teachers classroom and notified the principal.

That was last march.

“Now we know of another case.”

She believes it’s with the same teacher. Earlier this month the principal sent a note home to parents.

It informs them a school employee is now being investigated by the LAPD for misconduct. No names revealed. A spokesperson for the LAUSD refused an on air interview and would not confirm what type of  misconduct the teacher is accused of.

“I’m one of the parents, I have two kids at the school,” parent Tony Protillo.

Concerned Parents gathering this afternoon inside a private residence tell me the school isn’t providing them with enough details.

“Give us information -what did he do and who did he do it to.”

Alta  Loma Elementary is located in a lower income neighborhood.

Just last Monday former Sen. Martha Escutia held a news conference demanding the LAUSD address teacher misconduct that lately appears to be plaguing schools in similar communities.
