Substantiated Complaints
Plan: 9/02/20 - I looked for the said video on tik tok and couldn't find it. I called the employee that was accused of said video and she admitted to making the video, but removed it when a co-worker (whose child was in said video) approached her and told her that it wasn't a good idea to post on tik tok. The employee then removed the video. The accusation came several weeks after the video was taken down. I spoke with the employee and talked to her about safety issues concerning videos on social media. I then spoke to my other employees and told them the same thing. I did produce permission to photograph papers for all the children in the video.
Description: 1.) Personnel - Personnel demonstrated a lack of good judgment, creating a tik tok video in the classroom without parent permission.
