Two Indianapolis elementary students who were caught after committing a sex act are barred from school for the rest of the year.
The 12-year-old boy and 10-year-old girl are receiving lessons at home under a special district program but are not suspended, said Indianapolis Public Schools spokeswoman Mary Louise Bewley.
District officials are awaiting the results of a Child Protective Services investigation before making final decisions about the March incident.
On March 23, the boy asked the girl to perform a sex act with him, and she agreed, according to an IPS School Police report filed Thursday.
Shortly after they finished, a school security assistant found them in the boys bathroom, and the children ran. After they were caught, both told the principal that the boy had initiated the contact but that they both agreed to it.
The two were initially suspended and are now in the district's homebound learning program. "We immediately contacted Child Protective Services, and they are conducting an investigation," Bewley said.
The district also is investigating the incident, Bewley said.
The boy's family is blaming school officials for leaving him unsupervised according to Gammil's story. WTHR reported the boy was taking Zoloft to treat a mental illness.
