My son was hit in the back of the head by his teacher, it was so hard it burned and everyone in class heard and seen what happened. The kids next to him wrote statements and he reported it too the assistant principal/athletic director. The teacher who hit him was also a varsity basketball coach and a month later I realized this guy was still coaching and I don’t believe anything happen too him. I ended up calling the assistant principal and found out it was never reported too HR or the school district. He kept it under wraps at school. I went to school district and requested an immediate transfer out of schools. I’m trying to see about pressing charges on the teacher and also the principal as he also went to my sons work after hours and Harassed him and I have video proof? What can I do and how can I get these guys in trouble cause teachers get away with too much!!
Hitting a student without a legal basis is against the law in WA. A teacher may not impose physical punishment on a student in WA. Moreover, no legal physical punishment would involve hitting anyone in the back of the head.
Your son appears to be have been assaulted.
For a criminal law violation, you should contact the police.
You can find the schedule for the board of education in your area, attend a meeting of the board, and file a complaint. You can also file a complaint without going to a meeting. However, making a complaint at an open meeting would prevent the system from hiding the complaint.
If you want to sue the school for damages, you need to act quickly as there are special procedures for a claim against a government entity.
