Teacher fired after bringing students to the hospital

A teacher in a Colorado school district has been fired after she brought a group of students to a hospital.

The K-12 school district announced Monday that a teacher at Foothills High School was fired for bringing a group to the emergency room on Jan. 22, 2017, because she was a “person of interest” in the death of a student.

The district said in a news release that the district’s superintendent, Jim Hall, had determined that the teacher had acted in “negligent and/or malicious conduct” and that the matter will be investigated.

The district said it is cooperating fully with the investigation.

A district spokesperson told NBC affiliate KDVR that the board is investigating whether the teacher should have received a termination or been placed on administrative leave.

The superintendent did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The news station also reported that the school district received a complaint about the teacher on Jan, 22, which led to the investigation into the case.KDVR reported that Hall said the teacher’s actions were a result of a “personal vendetta.”
