SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – Documents regarding the arrest of a teacher with the Savannah-Chatham County Public School System (SCCPSS) provide new details into the child cruelty allegation.

According to SCCPSS, Elizabeth Board, 65, turned herself in to authorities on Monday on a charge of cruelty to children in the first degree.

A district spokesperson said the Godley Station K-8 teacher is accused of “inappropriate behavior.”

According to Board’s arrest warrant, the teacher is accused of using a zip tie to restrict the movement of a student.

The investigation remains active at this time.
