A South Texas teacher and an aide have resigned after using duct tape to restrain an 8-year-old boy in his chair for several hours to keep him under control.

Officials with the Judson Independent School District in the San Antonio area say the incident happened May 30 at Woodlake Elementary School. Both educators quit the next day.

District spokesman Steve Linscomb says the teacher, who’d been with Judson ISD since 2010, and the aide had faced being fired. The aide had been with the district since November.

A school district police report says the boy said his ankles, wrists and torso were taped to the chair. Tape residue was found on his clothes. He wasn’t hurt.

His mother says she’ll move her son to another district next year.
