ROCKLIN - A Rocklin special education teacher accused of abusing students in her class is on administrative leave. Now, police are investigating whether more school officials broke the law by failing to report the allegations.
Two families have filed claims against the Rocklin Unified School District alleging physical and emotional abuse of their children with special needs. That abuse investigation is now with the Placer County District Attorney's Office, and a separate investigation is looking into possible mandated reporter violations.
Keith Caldwell couldn't believe it when he learned in May that Rocklin police were investigating accusations that a teacher had abused his son, who does not speak due to autism.
