Dayton Public Schools has received several questions concerning the incident that occurred on August 21st at Rosa Parks Early Learning Center. The District would like to issue additional information regarding the incident.

Immediately upon viewing the video, the Department of Human Resources and Department of Safety & Security were contacted to open an investigation. On the day of the incident, the parents of the student involved were told about the incident in person. The employee involved in the incident was placed on administrative leave that day. He ultimately resigned in lieu of termination. The District has reported this incident to the Ohio Department of Education.

The District contacted Rosa Parks families and will be meeting with them to discuss the situation early next week. Again, the actions demonstrated in the video are contrary to all employee training, do not promote a culture conducive to learning, and are not tolerated in Dayton Public Schools. The safety of all students is the District’s utmost priority, and we would like to thank families for their support as we work to ensure a safe learning environment for all students.
