APPLETON, WI (WTAQ) - Four of the six families suing the Appleton Area School District have agreed to settle their civil action.
School officials wouldn’t say how much the plaintiffs received.
They sued over allegations of physical abuse by a special education teacher.
The district says the monetary losses were covered by insurance.
An assistant came forward with reports of abuse allegedly committed by former Janet Berry Elementary School teacher Mary Berglund. She was placed on three years probation in 2011 on her plea of no contest.
