Prosecutors say school workers saw former Antioch school district elementary school special education teacher Theresa Allen-Caulboy knee a child in the chest, pinch a child's nipples, pin a child to the ground and force students to "eat boogers." Allen-Caulboy has pleaded not guilty to charges she abused six young boys and girls, some of whom were nonverbal autistic students.
The Contra Costa Times reports (http://bit.ly/19fKBnp) that the Antioch school board announced the settlement on Wednesday night. The money will come from the district's insurance.
Parents alleged in a lawsuit that the district failed to report earlier allegations of abuse against Allen-Caulboy.
