Rockdale teachers accused of locking child with autism in bathroom, school investigates | #childsafety | #kids | #chldern | #parents | #schoolsafey


A district spokesperson confirmed officials are reviewing footage of the incident that took place at Davis Middle School on Aug. 3, 2023. Parent Jennifer Akins told FOX 5 her 13-year-old son Jordan, who is non-verbal, hasn’t been the same since he came home from school two weeks ago.

“His behaviors have been different since that Thursday,” she said. “I just felt numb knowing that he had to go through this, and he couldn’t tell us.”

“He got up and was throwing food, and then she said the para-professional stood up and told him, ‘Ok, you’re not having a good day, so you’re going in the bathroom,'” she recalled of the conversation. “She said that he was drug in the bathroom, the bathroom door was closed, there was a chair put in front of the door, and a student was advised to sit in the chair.”

In response to questions about the incident, a Rockdale County Schools spokesperson issued the following statement:

The Akins’ said that’s the same expectation they had for the teachers they entrusted with their child’s safety. 

The Akins said they’ve taken their son out of school for now, and they are supposed to meet with school officials to review video of the incident Thursday. In the meantime, they’ve obtained legal representation and are in the process of filing a report with Rockdale County authorities.
