Kawartha Lakes Police have charged a teacher at King Albert Public School in Lindsay with assault following an alleged incident involving a student last week.
Police received a complaint about the incident last Friday and after an investigation, a female teacher employed at the school was charged with one count of assault.
The student did not suffer any injuries as a result of the alleged assault, police said.
According to Trillium Lakelands District School Board, the teacher has been reassigned to another work site and is not doing work in a position of trust with students while the case is before the courts.
The name of the teacher was not released by police or the school board to protect the identity of the student.
