Elmwood Park Special Ed Teacher Will Not Be Indicted on Abuse Charges

Elmwood Park

A special education teacher accused of child abuse at the Sixteenth Avenue Elementary School in 2015 will not be indicted.

Ashley L. Frabizzio, 31, was initially charged with two counts each of child abuse and simple assault but charges have since been dismissed.

According to complaint, a school administrator reported that Frabizzio allegedly grabbed and pushed two 9-year-old children on separate occasions. One of the kids struck their head on furniture and was injured.

Frabizzio has no intentions of returning to her former job, according to her attorney.
