KINGS MILL, Ohio - The Kings school district responded to a lawsuit demanding information about the alleged abuse of special needs students at a public meeting Tuesday night.
The suit by Kim Grant claims a former teacher abused students then left the district on favorable terms and the abuse was "brushed under the rug" by the district.
Grant describes herself as a "citizen watchdog" of school district activities and is a member of of COAST, the Coalition Opposed to Additional Spending and Taxes.
The suit demands the district turn over its records on the case. Superintendent Valerie Browning told the school board that while there were problems with the teacher's management of the classroom, the Warren County Sheriff found no grounds for charges.
Browning says attorney-client privilege protects some of the records, and that providing them would violate the privacy of students.
