He was arrested at his house and booked into the Santa Ana Central Jail on $250,000 bond.
Greg Magnuson, superintendent of the Buena Park School District, said the arrest “shocked and disappointed” administrators and faculty members.
“His egregious personal behavior has nothing to do with his role as a board member, or our schools,” Magnuson said in a statement. “I want to assure you that the safety and well-being of our students remain our number one priority.”
Magnuson said district officials were not contacted by authorities regarding Chambers’ alleged conduct or his contact with students or staff during the investigation.
Chambers remains jailed on $250,000 bail, He’s scheduled to be arraigned Friday.
When Chambers was elected to the Buena Park school board in 2010, he had already worked with the district for about eight years, according to the Orange County Register.
Ironically the newspaper quotes Chambers as insisting that he had fiscal issues and the district’s students on his mind at the time: “My No. 1 goal is to secure funding,” Chambers said. “Budget issues must take priority.”
He added: “Before every decision is made, I ask how it benefits the kids.”
