The Manteca Unified School District is investigating controversial posts an employee made on her Facebook page.

Debbie McLarty, the head clerk at Walter Woodward Elementary, avoided FOX40 cameras Tuesday night.

"We need to investigate and determine if she  made these posts during work hours," Manteca Unified Deputy Superintendent Dr. Clark Burke said. "If she did then we will take corrective measures."

McLarty's posts referenced President Obama being shot in the head and her family sporting the confederate flag.

Clarke says McLarty has her right to free speech, but could face discipline if the posts were made during school hours.

“I don’t feel those vibes from her," parent Arlene Lopez said. "She’s always friendly, always professional. What you showed me is shocking."

McLarty has since taken down her Facebook page.
