Merrillville Superintendent Tony ..., 13 Mar 2013 [cached]
Merrillville Superintendent Tony Lux said he was aware of the incident and talked to the girl's mother Monday, who posted comments about the incident on her Facebook page.
Lux said he viewed the video and talked to Straub on Monday. He said several administrators and the school resource officer investigated the incident and reviewed the video, which came from the school's hallway cameras.
Lux said the investigation was not finished last week when the parent came in and one of the boys was absent from school. He said the investigation was completed Monday, and the two boys will be suspended. He said the school policy calls for a suspension ranging from one to three days.
Lux said the parent wanted to file some sort of charge against the two boys, but the SRO officer explained the incident did not warrant a police complaint. There is also no record on file that the parent filed a complaint with the Merrillville Police Department.
Lux said school officials attempted to notify the parent to report the incident to her but the telephone number on file was not correct.
Straub said she is glad to hear the boys will be suspended but she also thinks the Pierce administrators should be reprimanded for the way they handled the incident.
In an email response to the newspaper, Straub also said she sent an updated phone number to the school district and the school has emergency phone numbers for her mother and fiance. Straub said she intends to withdraw her daughter and consider homeschooling; she plans to move in the summer.

The change also meant that more students were behind academically when they started school, says Anthony Lux, who retired this past June after 19 years as Merrillville's superintendent.
"This was a trend we were seeing in surrounding schools, as more poor families were leaving Gary to have better educational opportunities in other towns," he says.
After a racially charged fight between white and African-American students during his first year as superintendent in 1994, Lux says, administrators brought parents, students, and community members together to talk about how to improve the school's environment.
With more economically disadvantaged students entering Merrillville schools, staff members had to adjust to teaching students at a wide range of academic achievement levels, especially in high school, Lux says.
Lux says these programs have helped more students graduate on time and increased their chances of success after high school. "All of our teacher volunteers in the Freshmen Academy just have unconditional love for kids and an undying determination that academic success is our only option," says Mark Sperling, the former Merrillville assistant superintendent who succeeded Lux.
The changing demographics have been an asset, Lux adds.
