LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Jefferson County Public Schools Head Start program has been hit with a lawsuit.
Those filing suit claim the Tully Early Childhood Head Start Program, its principal, two teacher assistants and the district were negligent when failing to provide a safe learning environment.
The mother of the student at the heart of the lawsuit claims her non-verbal three-year-old was abused while attending Tully.
The child is now attending a different school.
JCPS recently relinquished a $15 million federal Head Start grant after repeated allegations of verbal and physical abuse in the program.
