MARTINSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - A West Virginia school district has scheduled a special meeting to accept the resignations of two teachers’ aides following allegations they mistreated a nonverbal, autistic child.

The Journal reports that Berkeley County Schools posted notice on Monday of Thursday’s meeting.

The child’s mother, Amber Pack, said she put a recording device in the girl’s hair before sending her to school and in a clip she posted on social media, an adult can be heard telling the child that she’s going to punch her in the face and another tells the girl to “shut up.”

Berkeley County Schools said the employees involved were placed on administrative leave after the incident was reported in the fall. The teacher resigned shortly afterward and the aides’ resignations will be effective Thursday.
