The district says Lafayette Elementary Principal Jo Lute-Ervin did not violate policy but also did not follow best practices last month when she responded to reports a third-grade boy inappropriately touched himself during a lunch recess.
The Seattle Times reports Lute-Ervin individually interviewed five student witnesses in her office without their parents. During the interviews she asked several to demonstrate what they had seen the boy do.
An internal investigation released Tuesday concluded Lute-Ervin will not be disciplined.
The district says all principals will receive training in August on how to respond to allegations of sexual misconduct, harassment and bullying.
