A teacher forced to resign after students said she threatened them with deportation after President Donald Trump’s election win in 2016 was rehired as a substitute teacher, district officials confirmed Friday.
Diane Clark retired “in lieu of termination” on Nov. 28, 2016, weeks after students said she told them if they continued to misbehave, she would be calling immigration offices.
Cross Keys’ student population is more than 86 percent Latino.
Clark was one of two teachers put on leave from Cross Keys in November 2016 after allegations they made threatening statements in the wake of Donald Trump’s presidential victory.
