Two staff members seen on video standing in the door way during the incident.After incident seen smiling in hall way as one making flicking motions with finger / hand. Kilroy says seems like other two teacher thought it was some kind of joke! The board NEEDS to take action!!!!!!!!!!!
see bottom of page one and top of page two
Teachers initially told police that the student bit his lip and that’s why he was bleeding, according to court documents. However, another teacher witness eventually came forward to back up the student’s account of what happened, calling it the “biggest mistake of my life” to not tell the truth sooner, according to court documents
Proof others in Kirk weren’t telling the truth and I would love to see their internal statements provided to the building administration. Those who try to cover up crimes in schools should be held legally accountable.
All school boards need to change policies requiring a district level representative be present during any school level interview of staff re: potential crime and unprofessional behavior. Beau the ball is in you court! Let’s get it right.
Why did it take 11 days for the police to to be called on an incident where a student was injured by a teacher? When was the district superintendent informed and when did the superintendent inform the school board?
The victim then responded to the school nurse for treatment.
The investigation into the incident began on Friday, April 27, 2012 after the Delaware State Trooper assigned as the School Resource Officer at the George V. Kirk Middle School, located in the 100 block of Brennen Drive in Newark, was informed by school officials of an incident in which a teacher allegedly struck a student
The police revealed via their investigation the incident took place on April 16 in the classroom.
The student received treatment by the nurse day of incident and the school has an SRO! Did the student or staff tell the nurse what happened? If yes, didn’t anyone report it to the SRO the same day? There apparently was physical evidence.
News Journal reported, “Surveillance video in the classroom shows the teacher leaning toward the boy and her hand going toward the boy’s face”.
I do want to hear a bout the teacher or student whom some say he had it coming. My concern right now concerns school district policy and events that took place during those 11 days before police involvement. Will the district including school board review statements made to the building level administration and review any staff changes including contract vendors? Was there an efforts to downplay this incident by building administration? If so I must suspect the police have more work to do! Beau Biden wants to protect children from bullying and crimes committed by adults within the schools he best take serious not of these 11 days.
The school board has an obligation to address these concerns and a greater obligation to oversee rules and regulations protecting our children. If the board turns a blind-eye it will be a very sad day for children.
Beau Biden I urge you to investigate these 11 days.
