LAFAYETTE — A J.W. Faulk Elementary teacher has been disciplined following an investigation into how a student or students ended up glued to their classroom desk seats last week, a school district spokeswoman said Wednesday.
The teacher, whose name was not released, was suspended with pay when the incident was reported on Oct. 4. Angela Morrison, a district spokesperson, said at the time that the investigation involved a report that the students glued themselves to their own chairs after the teacher repeatedly told them to stay seated.
Morrison said in an email Wednesday that the investigation involved a teacher who allegedly asked a student or students to sit in seats covered in Elmer’s glue after warning them that they should stay seated.
“It was determined that the teacher was at fault and has been given appropriate disciplinary action. Because this is a personnel issue we will not be able to release the details of the actions taken,” Morrison said.
She declined to provide further details about the incident.
