A teacher stands accused of spanking a child, despite "no spanking" documentation on file for the child.
Shonna Beckwith, a physical education teacher at Weedon Elementary School in Florence, Alabama, allegedly spanked a child against the school's procedure on corporal punishment earlier in the month.
The city's school board is expected to render a decision in the case today, during their regularly scheduled meeting.
No further details are available at this time.
