A Southern California middle school science teacher who once appeared in a porn film has been fired by her school district over concerns the issue could pose a distraction to students, officials said on Thursday, Reuters reports. The five-person Oxnard school board voted unanimously on Wednesday night in favor of the dismissal of Stacie Halas, who had been a teacher at the Richard B. Haydock Intermediate School for almost three years. Superintendent Jeff Chancer said that, as a result of Halas’ role as a porn actress, the district found she had displayed immoral conduct, dishonesty and evident unfitness for service.

“To have Ms. Halas back at school would cause continued distraction and disruption, and it would be difficult for the students to concentrate,” Chancer said. “I don’t know Ms. Halas, but I feel badly for her.”
