Meeting held after educator accused of sexual misconduct with boy

Officials with the New Rochelle School District met with parents this evening after a school administrator was arrested for allegedly having sexual encounters with a 14-year-old boy.

Jose Martinez is the former dean at Isaac Young Middle School and was an assistant principal at Jefferson Elementary.

School officials told parents at the meeting that the schools are safe and they never had any indication that Martinez may have been engaged in such behavior with a student.

Students were split on their feelings about Martinez, with some saying they felt something was odd about the administrator and others saying they don't think he is guilty at all.
