AL­BU­QUERQUE — The Dis­trict At­tor­ney’s Of­fice says it will re­view Al­bu­querque Pub­lic Schools’ doc­u­men­ta­tion and records con­cern­ing an in­ci­dent where a teacher al­legedly cut the hair of a Na­tive Amer­i­can stu­dent and called an­other a “bloody In­dian.”

The Al­bu­querque Jour­nal re­ported that the school dis­trict said the in­ci­dent oc­curred on Hal­loween at Ci­bola High School.

Dis­trict At­tor­ney’s Of­fice spokesman Michael Pa­trick told the Jour­nal the of­fice was mak­ing its for­mal re­quest Thurs­day to re­view “the com­plete in­ci­dent in its en­tirety.”

Al­bu­querque Pub­lic Schools said ear­lier this month the teacher is no longer work­ing for the dis­trict, de­clin­ing to say if she re­signed or was fired.

Su­per­in­ten­dent Raquel Reedy, dur­ing a school board meet­ing Wed­nes­day, apol­o­gized on be­half of the dis­trict and said she is work­ing on a cul­tural sen­si­tiv­ity plan.
