5:12 am
systematic investigation. that includes the interview of 60-plus students and staff members. that takes a long time. we want to make sure we do a thorough job before determining the guilt or innocence of anyone. >> reporter: the detectives conducting those interviews have been specially trained in asking children those kinds of sensitive questions. one reason why they're interviewing so many people is they are concerned that there could potentially be other victims. the school tells us that they are cooperating with police. outside of that they have no further comment. reporting live in mountain view, bob redell, "today in the bay." 5:12 now. tens of thousands of bay area workers are keeping their eyes on financial news as one by one their companies reveal how well they did for the financial quarter. scott mcgrew generally such good news so far. >> just mediocre, definitely mott the recovery sort of news we wanted to see.
