Jefferson Parish school administrator on leave after incident with student

METAIRIE (WVUE) — Jefferson Parish Public School officials confirm that an administrator at John Q. Adams Middle School is on leave after an incident with a student last Tuesday (August 23).

The move comes after a student mother posted a viral photo on Facebook showing an adult grabbing her daughter by the hair.

Jefferson Parish Schools chief of staff Gabrielle Misfeldt said she could not confirm the identity of the school’s administrator, “because it is a personnel matter.” However, the administrator could face disciplinary action after the conclusion of an investigation into the incident.
