Prosecutors will decide whether charges are warranted in the case. Three-year-old Ty Stiffarm was left on the bus Monday for three hours in freezing temperatures after other children were dropped off at the tribal Head Start building.

Tribal programs director Chuck Walt tells the Duluth News Tribune that teachers will be required to take attendance early in the day to determine if there are any unexcused absences.

Walt says two transportation employees are on leave while an internal investigation is conducted.
