The girl, eighth-grader Seirra Olivero, was suspended for two days for insubordination.
While she acknowledges the charge, she contends in a complaint filed with the district that she felt bullied by three administrators because she told other students they didn’t have to take the test.
Her mother, Carin Beauchesne of Sparrowbush, said Thursday that she felt her daughter had done what students are told to do when they’re being bullied.
“She walked away! She felt she was being treated like a criminal. She’s a 13-year-old girl. What would you do?”
