THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Some students at Favor Christian Academy in Thomasville have enrolled in other schools after the academy's administrator was arrested.
Linda McLean has been charged with cruelty to a child, accused of choking and threatening an 11-year-old student.
Thomas County school officials said that 13 Favor students enrolled in their system this week.
They said that since next week is fall break, it's best to enroll new students by the end of this week.
"We work with the students, you know, we assess the kids just to kind of figure out where that they are in their curriculum, how much they've had and where we need to maybe pick up the pieces that they haven't had yet. So we do assess them to determine whether we need to start with the student," said Assistant Superintendent for Student services Lisa Williams.
WALB has not heard back from Thomasville city schools on their enrollment numbers at this time.
