Brandi Davis, the inaugural principal of LeBron James‘ I Promise School in Akron, Ohio, has resigned from her job after an investigation into allegations that she slapped a student.
An investigation into the incident had been completed, but the findings were not released.
Davis had been placed on administrative leave in September after the allegations. According to the Akron Beacon Journal, a student’s mother said Davis called her to let her know that she slapped her son for swearing. The 11-year-old boy reportedly had a busted lip.
The parent filed a report to the local police and board of education.
The report adds:
A records request is pending for documents related to the investigation. But Williamson confirmed the district will be notifying the state, a step that must be taken in cases in which there is a possibility an educator’s license could be in jeopardy.
Anthony Lane, who previously served as the principal at Robinson Community Learning Center, is currently filling in as the principal for the I Promise School.
Akron’s I Promise School is currently in its fourth year. I Promise is a public school for at-risk kids that’s a partnership with the LeBron James Family Foundation.
