A report released this week by the Concord School Board confirmed that top school district officials failed to thoroughly investigate and report sexual misconduct complaints against former teacher Howie Leung.

Leung is awaiting trial on charges of sexually assaulting a former Concord student while she was in middle school.

The 155-page, independent report shows a full decade of student and staff complaints about Leung’s behavior, but it says few steps were ever taken to address it by school administrators.

A newly released report sheds some light on how the Concord School District handled a teacher accused of having inappropriate relationships with students and sexually assaulting one of them.

Concord High School Principal Tom Sica has resigned, following months of public pressure and an investigation into the district's mishandling of allegations of sexual misconduct.

Sica has been on paid leave since June, after revelations that he had suspended a student in 2014 for raising concerns about Howie Leung, a former special ed teacher now facing charges of sexually assaulting a Concord student.

The Concord school board says it will wait for the results of an independent investigation before deciding the fate of embattled superintendent Terri Forsten and Concord High School principal Tom Sica.

The two administrators are under fire for how they handled allegations of sexual assault and inappropriate behavior by former teacher, Howie Leung.

Parents and advocates for children packed a Concord School Board meeting on Monday to give input on the district’s policies on sexual harassment, abuse and community safety.

The meeting came after revelations that the district mishandled allegations against Primo “Howie” Leung, a former special ed teacher, who is now facing charges of sexually assaulting a Concord student.
