An assistant principal who was the target of a recent protest staged by dozens of Bret Harte High School students is expected to return to school with everyone else after this week’s spring vacation.

No action has been taken against Assistant Principal Dalila Hernandez, whose administrative style spurred up to 100 students to protest on April 4. 

The school’s attorney, Byron Smith, launched an investigation on Friday into the 30-plus written complaints collected from students after the protest.

Ally Sheble, a junior who organized the protest, claims Hernandez treats students poorly and crossed lines in dealing with a harassment complaint.

Sheble and her father, Arthur Sheble, say they have been complaining to the district for months about Hernandez, but have not seen any results until Sheble and other students staged their protest.
