Principal Charged for Not Reporting Sex-Abuse Teacher

Under court order, the Evergreen School District on Thursday released notes taken by a principal who stands accused of failing to report suspected child sexual abuse by a teacher.

The notes by O.B. Whaley Elementary Principal Lyn Vijayendran detail how a second-grade student told her that teacher Craig Chandler put something in her mouth while she was blindfolded and alone with him in a classroom. Chandler wiggled her body and head "back and forth" and earlier asked her to "open her legs," according to the principal's handwritten and typed notes of the interview with the girl.
