“We understand that the SPTRB has taken action and that these teachers will not be in schools for the 2022-23 school year. No one named in the lawsuit will work in schools for the 2022-23 school year,” an education spokesperson said.

The SPRTB receives complaints from students, parents and the general public regarding the conduct and competence of teachers.

“We encourage anyone with concerns about a teacher to contact SPTRB. If anyone has an allegation against staff that is criminal in nature, we urge them to contact local law enforcement immediately,” the spokesperson added.
