A fight broke out inside a classroom for emotionally disturbed students, authorities said. The brawl got so intense that chairs were thrown, according to the report.

Detectives obtained three videos of the incident, which showed Joseph Graham, a student in the class, kicking another student and pushing him against a computer desk, Lizasuain said.

The student allegedly told the victim, “I will stomp your chest in and kill you.”

Two paraprofessionals, Kristie Lee Gilmore and Mona Sagar, were arrested and charged with child neglect.

A lawsuit has been filed against an area school district in connection with an incident in which a student says she lost a finger when a staff member slammed her hand in a metal door last year.

The suit, filed in Marion Superior Court, alleges staff at Sanders School in the Washington Township district locked a student, identified only as C.M., in an isolation room after the student became frustrated during a math class and attempted to leave the building on Jan. 12, 2012.

A vicious high school fight sent a school worker flying into a glass trophy case. For some people in one New Mexico school district, that fight highlights a lack of security on campus.

City officials in Española said they don’t expect to stop all school fights, but there are concerns that a shift in staffing is making the problem worse. Classmates captured cell-phone video of two teen girls fighting at Española Valley High last week. The video shows a school worker trying to break it up, as she gets thrown into a glass case near the main lobby. The girls keep fighting until someone eventually steps in.

District officials have reversed the suspension of a Santa Rosa High School junior who was beaten by two other girls in a video-recorded fight that sparked a lawsuit, her parents said Tuesday.

Alia Kanihan, 16, was assaulted in May by two Analy High School girls who came on campus to settle a dispute over a boy, said Kanihan’s father, Allen Danley.

The video shows Kanihan defending herself against one of the girls before both of them began pounding on her with their fists. A crowd of students looked on.

The school’s assistant principal, Danielle Valente, responded in part by suspending Kanihan for two days. Her parents appealed, saying the action was unfair and would affect their daughter’s ability to get accepted into a college dormitory.

The suspension was upheld on appeal, but district officials launched their own investigation and concluded there was reason to remove the suspension from the girl’s records.

Police have charged two teacher assistants and three students in a case that centers around a fight inside a public school classroom.

The Discovery Intermediate School teacher assistants were arrested at their homes late Friday and were taken to the county jail, said Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Twis Lizasuain.

On Jan. 9 a fight broke out inside a classroom for emotionally disturbed students, authorities said. The brawl got so intense that chairs were thrown, according to the report.

The student allegedly told the victim, “I will stomp your chest in and kill you.”

The court-appointed guardian of a 16-year-old Washburn School student has filed a $30 million dollar lawsuit against more than a dozen parties.

The case, filed last month by the victim’s court-appointed guardian, Katherine Parks, said the then 15-year-old was brutally attacked by four classmates, leaving her with injuries to the face and head, it said.

Parties in the suit named include director of schools Edwin Jarnagin, the Grainger County Board of Education, and all the named attackers’ families.

The suit says one of the four classmates confronted the victim, identified as “SL,” hit her head on a metal pole several times, and then the other three girls kicked and punched the victim several times.

“While this beating was going on, S.L. remembers seeing a teacher walk by. The teacher took no action to stop the assault on S.L. or to help her in any way,” the suit said.
