Police arrest teacher accused of abusing multiple students at Baker school
BAKER - A former teacher has been arrested by Baker police after allegations of abuse were uncovered in the past week.
The mother of the student reported the teacher at Advantage Charter Academy after the boy was allegedly choked. On Wednesday, Baker police revealed multiple students were apparently impacted as 69-year-old Etta Dunn was booked on seven counts of simple battery.
The school confirmed to WBRZ that Dunn no longer worked at the school as of Wednesday. It's unclear if the teacher was fired or if she left of her own volition.
The school released the following statement Wednesday afternoon.
“Providing a safe and secure learning environment for our students is always one of our top priorities. After we were made aware of allegations against one of our staff, we immediately began an investigation. We also are giving our full cooperation to local authorities, who are conducting their own investigation. Privacy laws prevent me from sharing further details.”
The investigation is ongoing.
