ANTIOCH, Calif. (AP) - A San Francisco Bay Area school district has agreed to an $8 million settlement with the families of eight special education students in an alleged teacher abuse case.

Prosecutors say school workers saw former Antioch school district elementary school special education teacher Theresa Allen-Caulboy knee a child in the chest, pinch a child's nipples, pin a child to the ground and force students to "eat boogers." Allen-Caulboy has pleaded not guilty to charges she abused six young boys and girls, some of whom were nonverbal autistic students.

The Contra Costa Times reports (http://bit.ly/19fKBnp) that the Antioch school board announced the settlement on Wednesday night. The money will come from the district's insurance.

Parents alleged in a lawsuit that the district failed to report earlier allegations of abuse against Allen-Caulboy.
