COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

A Dreher High School teacher is being investigated after a student reported to school officials that the teacher hit her on the head March 19.

The student told police that the teacher slapped her head with his open hand. 

According to the teacher, it was an effort to get her attention after she refused to comply but not with the intention of causing harm, according to an incident report.

A school resource officer spoke with the parent who at the time did not want to take any other action other than documentation.

The mother later took her daughter to the hospital after she complained about head pain, according to the report.

A district spokesperson told WIS the teacher is still employed by the district but he has not been in the classroom since the alleged incident occurred.

No charges have been filed.
