GARY | EdisonLearning has fired a female teacher at Roosevelt College and Career Academy following an investigation into misconduct.
Roosevelt has been operated by the Tennessee-based management company this school year after the state took over the school because of six consecutive years of academic failure under the Gary Community School Corp.
Vanessa Ronketto, a senior achievement director for EdisonLearning and the school's superintendent, said it's a personnel matter and the school is not allowed to provide any specific details relating to the incident.
"However, I can state that the incident was thoroughly investigated by the school leadership, and as a result of the investigation decisions were made to take appropriate action concerning those involved," she said.
"Further, the reason for the action taken as a result of the school’s thorough investigation into this matter — which included interviews and the review of other relevant evidence — was communicated and specifically detailed in writing to the employee. The school is not at liberty to share the contents of that communication," Ronketto said.
