Teacher Lysol Resigns
December 18, 2011 by staff
Rolling Meadows police said they declined to bring charges against the teacher, whose resignation formally was accepted Thursday, at the request of the student’s father, who did not want to sign a complaint against her.
The Daily Herald is not naming the 47-year-old math and science instructor because she has not been charged. She did not returned several calls seeking comment.
Northwest Suburban High School District 214 officials declined to discuss specifics of the event or the teacher’s resignation.
“The safety of our students is our number one priority,” said district spokeswoman Venetia Miles. “Any inappropriate conduct by a staff member is considered a personnel matter. It can’t be discussed due to confidentiality laws.”
Police began investigating after an emergency call placed from the school at
1:36 p.m. Nov. 30 indicated a 15-year-old male student suffered an eye injury upon being sprayed in the face with a chemical. The student was transported by ambulance to Northwest Community Hospital, but is not expected to have any permanent eye damage.
According to police reports obtained through a Freedom of Information request, the student said “the teacher told all students to put their safety goggles on, and was walking around the room with a spray bottle telling students if they didn’t have their safety glasses on, she would spray them.”
The report indicates the teen told police the teacher first sprayed another student who did not have his goggles on, but he turned away and was sprayed on the back of the head.
The boy said he was adjusting his safety goggles when he was sprayed, according to the police report. The student told police that the teacher had never done anything like this before, but admitted to a prior confrontation in which he “did get mad and screamed” at her.
