LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A Jefferson County school district report has concluded that some staff at a recently shuttered school inappropriately put their hands on students, mishandled the use of seclusion and failed to report physical altercations.

According to a the investigative report, multiple staff members at Louisville’s Kennedy Metro Middle alternative school made inappropriate physical contact with students, including ramming their heads into walls. The report, dated Nov. 17, 2014, was obtained recently by multiple news outlets through a state open records request.

Kennedy Metro was closed at the end of last school year to make way for a new elementary school at the same location.

Board member Chris Brady says he is infuriated that none of the staff members have been significantly disciplined, with many continuing to work in district schools.
