JCPS suspends 14 employees

10 JCPS employees receive suspension notices

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – A number of JCPS employees received suspension notices this week in response to allegations about excessive use of restraints inside local schools.

The district was accused of holding down or confining students and not properly reporting the incidents.

The Kentucky Department of Education is doing a full management review of the policy and reporting procedures.

Last month's superintendent report stated that some of the 14 employees would be on paid leave while a former FBI agent reviewed the incidents.

Ten of those employees received their suspension notices on Wednesday. A JCPS spokeswoman says the other four employees are no longer with the school district.
