... Gina DeBoni, an attorney representing families of children who may have been given the wrong medication, said the firing was “far overdue,” but an “incomplete response.” DeBoni called for other administrators to be placed on leave, saying she’s uncovered evidence in her civil investigation that district officials received reports of missing medication as early as 2022.

“One official stated that concerns had been documented in the past regarding the administration of medication as well as missing medication, and the official apologized that they were sorry to have broken the trust the parents have given to care for their children,” DeBoni, of the Chicago law firm Romanucci & Blandin, said in a prepared statement given during the board meeting.
