Dr. Robert Newhart said Thursday, Nov. 10 an incident took place at Webster Learning Center in which an elementary student was restrained.
“To make sure we do this by the book we have placed three staff members on administrative leave pending the investigation of the incident and the incident has been hotlined and will be investigated by the division of social services,” Newhart said. “Webster deals with a lot of behavioral situations and behavioral issues with kids and we just want to make sure the appropriate and required training and restraint procedures were used.”
Newhart said the length of the investigation is unknown.
“We want to do this by the book. Again the whole reason for this is protecting all individuals involved just to make sure that everybody’s rights and procedures have been taken care of and are in place,” Newhart said.
