A high school band director and teacher on Maui was fired this month after being under investigation for the past eight months.
The Maui News cited Department of Education communications, which allegedly showed Stephen Rodrigues admitted to inappropriate behavior at his home, involving three Baldwin High School students from 2003 to 2005.
The paper reports Rodrigues was under investigation for possible sexual misconduct with those three students, plus another, in the 2017 to 2018 school year.
Rodrigues had been on paid leave since April.
The DOE could not confirm details of Rodrigues’ departure due to confidentiality restrictions.
