Bullying investigation stalled

CLINTON — An investigation into alleged bullying that left a 6-year-old with a broken arm has stalled, Clinton School District Superintendent Gary DeLacy said this week.

"Unfortunately we are at a standstill," DeLacy said of an investigation into accusations of bullying at Jefferson Elementary School.

James M. Sweeney and Associates of Davenport is investigating the incident for the school district, but as of Wednesday parents of the student had not given consent for the release of medical records, DeLacy said.

Local media reported in October that Bella Streats, the daughter of Betty and Dustin Streats, sustained two fractures in her arm as a result of being tackled by two other girls in gym class, the culmination of alleged repeated bullying at the school.
