SOUTH BEND Director of Communications Sue Coney released the following statement Thursday regarding the altercation between a teacher and student at Adams High School:
Last Wednesday, March 19th before the start of the school day, there was an incident involving a John Adams High School student and teacher.
The teacher was supervising students in the hallway and stairwell near the teacher's classroom. Another student who was at the top of the stairs videotaped part of this incident.
The recording and release of the video to a local television station occurred without the knowledge of the School Corporation.
We take all matters involving staff and student safety very seriously.
This matter has been thoroughly investigated and any disciplinary measures which may have resulted from this incident have been implemented.
