The name "Miramonte" has become synonymous with the sex-abuse scandal that erupted last February in the nation's second-largest school district.
The K-5 campus in South Los Angeles was home to Mark Berndt, a veteran teacher now charged with molesting 23 students by spoon-feeding them his semen in a bizarre "tasting" game.
His arrest in February came a year after Los Angeles Unified officials removed him from the classroom and paid him $40,000 to drop an appeal of his dismissal.
Berndt, 61, has pleaded not guilty to 23 counts of committing lewd acts with a child. He remains jailed on $23 million bail, pending a preliminary hearing that has not yet been scheduled.
Days after Berndt's arrest, authorities apprehended a second Miramonte teacher, Martin Springer, on molestation charges.
Springer, 50, has been ordered to stand trial on charges of fondling three girls. He has pleaded not guilty.
As the public was reeling from the unfolding Miramonte scandal, the news broke that Paul Chapel, a teacher at Telfair Elementary in Pacoima, had been arrested the previous October for molesting four students.
The outcry over the delay prompted the school district to implement a new policy requiring parents to be notified within 72 hours if an employee at their child's school is accused of misconduct.
Chapel ultimately pleaded no contest to molesting 13 of his students and is serving a 25-year sentence at North Kern State Prison in Delano.
He had been prosecuted 15 years earlier for molesting a young neighbor in Simi Valley, but he was allowed to return to the classroom after the trial ended in a hung jury.
