Richard Werlin comes out of hiding
Richard Werlin's illegal actions as Assistant Superintendent cost Chula Vista Elementary School District about half a million dollars from 2001 to 2005 because the school board decided to cover up the wrongdoing, instead of reversing it.
Werlin disappeared from sight for a while, but then turned up briefly at West Contra Costa County Unified School District (WCCCUSD). He left after about 6 months, having succeeded in getting a second grade teacher (Jenny Mo) thrown in jail for holding hostages because she stayed with her second grade class instead of going home when he told her to. Of course, she would have been wise to go home, but being jailed with $900,000 bail was a bit much, especially since the order to go home was a result of her talking to the media about bullying problems at Shelton School.
Werlin disappeared again after that, but he has now turned up in Compton Unified School District.
I hope this information isn't too late to help Iwana. If you see this, Mr. Werlin, she is looking for you. Here is what she posted:

"Where's Rick Werlin"
Can someone help me find Rick Werlin. I really need his help in validating something from When I taught school 1988-1990 in Galveston Texas. He was my Personel Director then. Thanks, Iwana(Sistrunk)Reynolds
