The student, who attended Polo Park Middle School, told a school administrator that he was talking loudly in class Oct. 14 when teacher Guyette Duhart told him he needed to have his mouth washed out with soap, the investigation found.
Duhart then grabbed a bottle of hand sanitizer from her desk, investigators said, and told the student to approach her.
Six students told investigators that Duhart then pumped hand sanitizer into the student’s mouth, a district investigation found.
Duhart admitted to holding the sanitizer near his mouth but claimed the student grabbed the bottle himself and pumped it into his own mouth.
The student spit onto the floor and left the classroom, the investigation found. When he returned, Duhart let him go to a bathroom to rinse his mouth.
The school district concluded the allegation against Duhart was substantiated. The school board on Wednesday approved a 10-day suspension without pay.

With an Alanis Morissette level of ironical irony, a number of Indiana State University students and employees reported having flu-like symptoms after consuming food they ate at the April 4 Ethics and Social Responsibility Conference at ISU.
ISU food service providers are denying that contaminated food is to blame.
Conference attendees were served box lunches of cold cut sandwiches, a fruit cup, a pickle and a bag of potato chips.
The Indiana Statesman contacted one of the event’s Scott College of Business student organizers who was instructed not to speak on the record about reports of illness linked to the conference.
But College of Business Associate Dean Bruce McLaren said he received reports on April 5 of attendees having become ill following the conference. McLaren said he knew of multiple students and faculty who became ill. After receiving those reports, he notified Sodexo, he said.
According to a statement issued April 12 by Sodexo public relations director Monica Zimmer, "Sodexo was notified about alleged foodborne illness at Indiana State University. We have reviewed our procedures and are confident they are in line with our stringent food safety standards."
"The health department completed three inspections in the Hulman Memorial Student Union this week and found no violations. In addition, Sodexo received a food safety score of 99% during a recent inspection by a third-party auditor."

Jason Laughlin, a spokesman for the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office told the Philadelphia Daily News that when a teacher found out the next day, the accused 17-year-old was charged with aggravated assault and tampering with a food product.
The accused, a standout wrestler (is this The Breakfast Club?), was not identified because of his age. His mother said the incident was being "blown out of proportion" and declined to comment further. His father is a physical-education teacher in the district.
The suspect has a scheduled hearing Thursday in Camden County Superior Court, Laughlin said.
