Boardman teacher’s aide accused in stapling incident resigns

BOARDMAN — An aide with the Boardman Local School district resigned today after being accused of stapling a note to child’s hair or head, the Mahoning County Prosecutor’s office has confirmed.

Both the prosecutor’s office and the Boardman Police department have concluded their investigation “of supplemental evidence obtained in the matter,” according to a news release.

Instead of pursuing criminal action, “prosecutors have secured an agreement that the teacher’s aide will immediately resign” with Boardman Local Schools, the statement reads.

The aide was not charged for allegedly stapling a reminder to a child at Boardman Center Intermediate School. The newspaper does not identify uncharged suspects.

“While the evidence uncovered an egregious act of stapling a note to the child’s hair, the evidence does not support a criminal assault charge against the teacher’s aide,” the release from the prosecutor’s office states.
