Teacher arrested on charges of sexual relationship with students

Tracy, California: Wednesday, May 4, police announced the arrest of 30-year-old Jordan Musa Dajani after an investigation revealed reason to believe that he may have had sexual relationships with at least three students during his time as a teacher.

 

One of those relationships was determined to be with an 18-year-old student so no charges were filed for that case.

 

Two others, however, one at Grace Davis High School in Modesto, California and the other from West High School, did result in charges.

 

Dajani was booked into the Stanislaus County Jail on charges including sodomy with a person under the age of 18 and oral copulation with a person under the age of 18. He is no longer showing on the jail's roster of inmates.

 

According to the information provided by VINE, Dajani was booked into the jail on Thursday, April 28 and he bonded out of custody the following day.

 

Investigators revealed that they began looking into Dajani after they were made aware of an inappropriate relationship between a teacher and student on April 25, 2022.

 

Dajani taught at Grace Davis High School between 2015 and 2017 and has worked at West High School since 2017.

 

Tracy Unified School District Superintendent Brian Stephens refused to issue a comment on the matter beyond saying that as soon as the district was notified of the investigation, Dajani was placed on administrative leave.

 

As of this writing, Dajani has not yet been removed from the staff listing on West High's website.

 

Mike Henderson, associate superintendent for Human Resources at Modesto City Schools issued the following statement to ABC 10.

 

"Jordan Musa Dajani was employed as a substitute teacher with Modesto City Schools during the 2016-2017 school year. Our records reflect that he satisfactorily completed background checks including the Department of Justice fingerprint requirements. District records indicate Dajani was seeking qualification to be eligible to apply for teaching positions but did not complete requirements while pursuing full time employment with Modesto City Schools.

 

"Student safety is a priority. To this end, Modesto City Schools i prepared to cooperate with law enforcement's investigation."
