Oxnard teacher fired for porn shoot losing her paycheck

The Oxnard teacher who was fired for making porn movies will be taken off administrative leave next month, effectively cutting off her paychecks.

Stacie Halas was fired in April after students discovered her pornographic films.

On Wednesday, the Oxnard School District Board of Trustees moved to terminate her administrative pay Feb. 13.

It’s the last day she can appeal a dismissal order from the Commission on Professional Competence to the Ventura County Superior Court. The commission found 32-year-old Halas unfit to teach eighth-grade science at Haydock Intermediate School and ordered her dismissal in a 47-page report.

That’s “the last day for her to file an appeal in Superior Court which runs for 30 days from the ruling,” said Tom DeLapp, school district spokesman. “We have no indication whether she will pursue this option.”

On Wednesday, Halas’ attorney said he wasn’t sure if she was going to pursue an appeal.

“I’m very disappointed,” Schwab said Wednesday.

“We believe Ms. Halas was very honest and forthright, but extremely nervous and embarrassed by her past," he said. "She’s obviously very disappointed and hurt.”
