The Penta Career Center Board of Education voted Wednesday to fire a medical technician teacher for misconduct.
Mark Zafuto was charged with using inappropriate language and making inappropriate comments to a student or students in violation of the school's anti-harassment policy. He was also charged with inappropriate conduct in the presence of students, leaving the classroom without permission to smoke, failure to enforce the school's dress code, and advising students not to report the conduct and threatening them with retaliation if they did.
Zafuto has been suspended without pay as of Wednesday as the termination process continues.
