Progress H.S assistant principal removed over sexual remarks

Progress High School for the Professional Career's assistant principal has been removed from office after allegedly making inappropriate sexual remarks to three 15-year-old students.

Investigators say William Abreu met with each of the girls as they applied for summer jobs at the school. According to their report, Abreu asked them if they were sexually active and allegedly asked one of them to perform oral sex on him.

Officials say a school aide solicited those students to apply for the jobs. A Department of Education official says that the aide has been suspended without pay.
