A Glen Spey couple is suing the Eldred School District, claiming officials there failed to stop students from repeatedly harassing and physically abusing their son.

In a suit filed this month in Sullivan County, the couple says their son “suffered physical injury, extreme stress, humiliation, shame” and other damage while being bullied during the 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 school years.

The district is accused of failing to prevent the bullying after being made aware of it as early as September 2011, and of allowing students to retaliate against the couple’s son after the bullying was reported.

Attorney JenniElena Rubino of New York City is representing the parents. She alleges the district violated the state’s Dignity for All Students Act, which took effect July 1, 2012.

The law requires school officials to investigate bullying and discrimination allegations, end harassment and prevent it from recurring.

In this case, the couple says Eldred students “harassed, teased, harried” and “battered and assaulted” their son on multiple occasions. The bullying took place on school grounds and at school functions, the complaint said.

Their son had to repeat a grade when his performance dropped as a result of the bullying, and he was disciplined by school officials due to his reactions to the harassment.
