An assistant principal at Pahokee Middle Sr. High School has been fired after accusations that he groped a female student and asked another one to send him pictures of her legs.
The school district began investigating Assistant Principal Oscar Villanueva in October after complaints that he had sexually harassed two students.
One of the students said that Villanueva, 60, told her that if he was her age he would make her his girlfriend, and that he asked her to send him pictures of her legs, according to a school district report.
Another student said that Villanueva touched her buttocks two separate times and asked her if he could touch her with no pants on, the report said.
School district police investigated the allegations but did not file charges. School officials reported the incidents to the state Department of Children and Families hotline.
Questioned by school district officials, Villanueva denied all of the allegations. He did not respond to a phone message seeking comment.
Villanueva was removed from the school on Nov. 9 and has been on alternative assignment since then, a school district spokeswoman said.
Superintendent Robert Avossa recommended that Villanueva, a school district employee since 1992, be fired effective June 28.
