I am an elementary school teacher in a Georgia public school. On Sunday night, I was notified that a student alleged that he was “roughed up” by me. My employer temporarily re assigned to an administrative office and said that an internal investigation would be conducted. My employer said that the student’s parent filed a police report, that student was in school and had no doctor’s note or limitations of activity.
It has been 3 days and I have received no further information. The police have not contacted me. My employer said that they have not received the police report or any further information. Therefore, they have not been able to perform an investigation. I remain in the administrative office on temporary duty. These allegations are false. What are my rights to have access to the police report? What should my next steps be in this process?
