School district suspends workers amid student injury probe
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – A Kentucky school district has suspended 10 employees amid investigations into incidents where students were injured as a result of staff members’ actions.
Jefferson County Public Schools spokeswoman Allison Martin tells The Courier-Journal (http://cjky.it/2ct1Rs0) that the employees were suspended Wednesday and will be reassigned to noninstructional duties as the district investigates.
The district says it has been working since March to review 14 past investigations dating as far back as 2005 that “involved student injuries and alleged employee misconduct” to see if those investigations were handled properly.
Among those suspended was a high school security monitor who is accused of slamming a girl’s head against a table while using an Aikido training technique to physically restrain her.
