Despite a public announcement that Concord High School Principal Tom Sica was on a voluntary paid leave of absence between June and September, Sica was allowed to remain on the job throughout the summer and into the new school year outside of the public eye.
The move left the public with the impression that Sica was stepping aside while an independent investigator examined the school district’s handling of student complaints about Howie Leung, a high school teacher facing sexual assault charges. The student complaints were made in 2014 and 2018, and in both cases, Sica was the principal, moving from Rundlett Middle School and then to Concord High at the same time as Leung.
