“Porn movie shot at high school prompts filming ban in Los Angeles”

Los Angeles has ordered that film shoots be suspended at all its school campuses after it emerged one of them was used to make a porn film.

“It is important that we ensure teaching and learning are not disrupted, and that all filming activity is appropriate for our schools,” said Ramon Cortines, head of the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD).

“As an organization responsible for educating students it is essential that we hold ourselves and our schools to a high standard.”

According to NBC4, a local television station, records indicated a pornographic film released in 2012 was filmed at Alexander Hamilton High School.

The school is in the Berverlywood area of western Los Angeles but the ban on filming covers the entire city, including the epicentre of US cinema, Hollywood.

FilmLA, an organization that processes film shooting permits for studios, issued a statement on its website informing its clients of the school district’s decision.

“At this time the duration of the LAUSD filming hiatus is uncertain,” it said.

“If you were planning to film at an LAUSD school or property on or after 9 October 2015, please be advised that your request will not be approved.”

Money from production companies is a lucrative business for the Los Angeles school district, reportedly bringing in some $10m in the past five years.

Mortified school officials say they were misled by the company and would not have allowed the shoot had they known it was for a such a purpose.
