Parents file claim against school over alleged abuse

The parents of a Redwood City elementary school student allegedly abused by a teacher have filed a $1 million claim against the school district and the teacher.

Alexia Bogdis, 44, is accused of a series of violent attacks on children suffering from developmental disabilities. She taught special education at the Roosevelt Middle School and faces trial later this year.

The little boy whose parents filed the claim Tuesday had to be hospitalized.

Filing a claim is a precursor to filing a lawsuit.
