EAST CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) - A northeast Ohio school district is paying $27,500 as part of a settlement to the family of a special needs student who was dragged down a hallway and kicked into an office by a principal.

Cleveland.com reports (https://bit.ly/1SXxZ97 ) the settlement was approved by the East Cleveland school district earlier this week.

Bridgette Hereford filed a lawsuit in July alleging that her 8-year-old boy was grabbed by Caledonia Elementary School’s former principal following an altercation with a classmate in December 2014.

The principal was placed on leave after the incident and resigned from the district in June.

Hereford’s attorneys declined to comment on the lawsuit. Superintendent Myrna Loy Corley says she believes the settlement speaks for itself.
