Victims of John Loyd allege that school district had available training to prevent and detect teacher’s crimes

MORGAN HILL — A civil trial is underway to resolve whether school administrators could have prevented or more quickly detected sexual abuse of a lot of students by a former teacher who is now serving a 40-year prison sentence.

The 4th of Loyd’s victims is not included in the lawsuit against the district because she was abused a 10 years earlier, and not at the school.

“Each and every one of these ‘red flags’ were present in spades over a period of years,” they wrote in a recent court filing submitted Feb. 21. “The proverbial writing was on the wall.”
