You Paid For It – Rising Violence In Normandy Schools

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

NORMANDY, MO (KTVI) - Violence in the troubled Normandy School District in North County has gotten so out of hand that teachers are finding themselves under attack from students. One teacher told FOX 2 of being pepper sprayed by a student when she tried and stop a fight involving nearly a dozen 9th grade girls. She has more stories of attacks on teachers, like one being chocked by a student.

Many students are not being given the discipline they deserve because the School District is trying to keep as many of them in the classroom. Students in classrooms will make their attendance report look good. A good report will increase their chances of winning back accreditation. The District faces a state takeover if it doesn't improve. That could cost a lot of administrators their jobs.

Bullying is another major concern we found in the school district. One parent who says her son is being bullied says she's scared to send him to school for fear of what will happen to him.

While the statewide average of incidents in school has gone down the number at Normandy has shot up.
We obtained the list of all the incidents since last July. There were 182 of them including fights, bullying , assaults on staff and sexual assaults.

The Normandy School Board declined to comment on this story.
