Austintown police charge former classroom aide with assaulting special needs child

Posted: Updated:
A former classroom aide faces criminal charges for allegedly assaulting a special needs child at Austintown Fitch High School.

49-year-old Lisa Schriner of Austintown is scheduled to appear in Mahoning County Court for a pre-trial hearing on June 23.  She was charged with assault and child endangering in April.

According to a police report, the mother of a fifteen year old boy who is diagnosed with Down Syndrome and Autism, told police that her son was "roughed up" by a school aide.

On April 9, a bus driver reported that a classroom aide threw the boy into a brick wall against the side of the school. After the child fell to the ground, the aide allegedly continued to yell at the victim, telling  the child to get on the bus.

The bus driver came to the aid of teen, who reported that the boy was extremely upset and crying.  The driver says that the aide grabbed the victim from underneath his jaw, at which point the teen head-butted the aide.

The investigating officer noted that there were no marks on the teen at the time was taking the police report.

Austintown and other school districts obtain their classroom aides from the Mahoning County Educational Service Center.  However, Mahoning County ESC Superintendent Ron Iarussi tells 21 News that Schriner was a temporary worker, employed by the Callos Companies, and not an employee of ESC.

Iarussi says that Schriner is no longer an employee of Callos, which he says provides ESC with an average of 200 temporary employees each school year. Iarussi says that Callos is responsible for conducting background checks on the people they hire.
