SAN ANTONIO (AP) - A suburban San Antonio school district is reviewing teacher training guidelines after two disciplinary incidents involving students.

One involved a teacher restraining a student in a chair with duct tape, and another involved a teacher ordering her kindergartners to take turns hitting a classmate accused of being a bully.

Judson Independent School District spokesman Steve Linscomb said Thursday school officials will review training guidelines to make sure "there isn't something we are missing." He promises appropriate changes will be made.

Linscomb says one of the district's teachers taped an 8-year-old boy to a chair in May because he was too rowdy and couldn't be controlled. The teacher and a teacher's aide resigned.

Last year another teacher was fired and indicted for allegedly encouraging 20 students to hit a 6-year-old student.
