Natrona County school officials are meeting with an attorney to review their handling of a bullying incident in October.
According to the Casper Star Tribune, attorney Craig Silva is looking into a situation in which two students were suspended for fighting, including a girl that was injured with a concussion. Two other participants received a lesser punishment from the school.
An altercation on a school bus apparently turned into an off-bus fight. Some of the altercation was captured on a school bus video.
Not captured on video, however, were claims that the injured girl’s mother is making. According to the mother, three girls pinned her daughter against a fence and beat her after the bus incident, leaving her with a concussion.
The 7th-grade girls involved disagreed with the mother’s claim.
At this point, Casper school officials said there is no evidence to support that claim, but they’re looking into the matter.
