Paloma Valley English Teacher Placed on Administrative Leave

Editor's note: Menifee 24/7 previously reported that a student in the classroom said McCullough was removed from the classroom by an administrator and a police officer, but this could not be confirmed and district officials said there was no police involvement. Menifee 24/7 apologizes for any confusion that may have resulted from the inclusion of that statement.

An English and Language Arts teacher at Paloma Valley High School has been placed on paid administrative leave after being removed from the classroom during school on Thursday.

No police action was taken against Melinda McCulloch, who also is the school yearbook advisor, said Dr. Jonathan Greenberg, superintendent of the Perris Union High School District.

Greenberg said he could not comment further because of confidentiality issues. Paul Clay, president of the Perris Secondary Educators Association, said there was no police involvement in the situation and no officers were on campus during McCulloch's removal.
