The parents of three special needs children say their children suffered abuse or neglect by a special education teacher at Marion County High School last year, and one of the plaintiffs is the school's immediate past principal.
The lawsuit also says that Schools Superintendent Taylora Schlosser fired classroom aides who reported problems to parents.
In a statement, Schlosser said the school district doesn't comment on pending litigation. However, she said district officials are always concerned about allegation involving their students.
