Great Falls, Montana School Bus

Two teacher’s aides are accused of holding a 14-year-old autistic boy’s head under running water, forcing him to eat his own vomit and making him sit in his soiled clothes for hours.

Garrett Schilling, who cannot speak, attended Great Falls’ North Middle School, in Montana, from 2008 until April 2009.

He allegedly suffered abuse at the hands of Kristina Marie Kallies and Julie Ann Parish, who each deny charges of one felony count of assault and one misdemeanor charge of endangering the welfare of children.

The boy’s mother Tifonie Schilling says she learned of the alleged abuse after another staff member emailed her.

She said: ‘He was having water-boarding-like torture done to him on a frequent basis. They were holding his head under the water.’

Maria Bubb, who worked as a substitute teacher in Garrett’s classroom in October and November last year, said in court documents that staff were ‘mean and degrading’ to the teenager and that Kallies would ‘point her finger in his face and scream at him’

 

Other teachers have also testified to say they saw Garrett’s head held under running water and described how he was forced to sit in his own faeces for hours.

Mrs Schilling said ‘He lives in a world now where he is constantly in fear that somebody is going to hurt him.’

If Kallies and Parish are convicted, they could face a maximum of five-and-a-half years in prison.

The parents of five other children at the school also claim their children were abused.

Molly Gillis says her daughter came home from the school ‘on numerous occasions with bite marks, bruises, burnt fingertips and missing hair.’

Hair-pulling report prompted action

The Post and Courier
Friday, October 23, 2009

Knightsville Elementary School’s top three administrators were removed from their posts after failing to report to proper authorities an alleged incident in which a school employee pulled a child’s hair, forced him into his seat and grabbed his arm so tightly it left marks.

A person who was in a classroom for autistic students at the school reported seeing a teacher pull a kneeling 6-year-old boy from the floor by his hair and put him in his chair, according to a report Oct. 2 from the Dorchester County Sheriff’s Office. The child then put his hand in his pants, the report said, and the teacher grabbed the boy’s arm so tightly it left marks.

The person who observed the alleged incident Aug. 20 told her psychologist that she reported it to the school’s administration but nothing was done about it. The psychologist then reported the allegations to the Sheriff’s Office, according to the report.

Dorchester District 2 officials, in a news release Tuesday, stated the incident involved a teaching assistant, not a teacher. The Sheriff’s Office is investigating the allegations. No charges have been filed.

Parents said Tuesday night they were confused and shocked by the administrative team’s abrupt departure, and the initial lack of information fed speculation about the trio’s removal. The Post and Courier tried to obtain the incident report Wednesday and the Sheriff’s Office provided it Thursday.

The district learned about the allegations from sheriff’s deputies who were following up on the psychologist’s report, said Pat Raynor, public information officer for District 2.
