I am a HS football coach that has had some false allegations of sexual activity on school grounds wih a woman that I had a realationship with. The typical jilted lover that now has to try and take down my job as a coach. She had texts that talked about meeting me at the school which we would do and go out. She lied and told the school we had sex in the football office. My question is this since anyone can print off texts to make her story look like the truth how is it legal for the school to use text messages that should be private to try and validate firing me? Isn't there a freedom of privacy act?

Freedom of speech lets her say anything she likes, subject of course to possible slander suit if you could prove actually false allegations. Prove, not merely your denial.
Not only 'can' the school, but they probably 'must', investigate any allegations of improper conduct by staff. You need to provide them all evidence and testimony available to rebut her allegations. You really should hire experienced counsel to help you in this. If serious about doing so, and if this is in SoCal, feel free to contact me.
