Parents Plan to Discuss Disruptive St. Johns Student with School Board

We're told several dozens parents tonight in the St. Johns school district plan to attend their board of education meeting to further discuss their safety concerns after a disruptive student was psychically violent with several students on several different occasions.

Since the school year began there have been a number of incidents involving an unruly second grade student who disrupted class and was physically violent with other students.

We spoke to one parent who said her son was punched in the back and had to receive medical attention.

But parents tell us they weren't informed of what was happening until recently and many of them now want that student pulled from the classroom.

News 10 spoke with St. Johns Superintendent Dedrick Martin Thursday who said he wasn't sure why it took so long to inform parents but assured us the district was investigating the situation.

Martin would not confirm whether the disruptive student would be allowed to continue to stay in the classroom.

WILX's Josh Sidorowicz will be at the meeting tonight speaking with parents and members on the board and will have more tonight on News 10 at 11.

Tonight's meeting is at 7pm at the Wilson Center Board Room, 101 W. Cass St. in St. Johns.
