She was arrested in May. Police say she stole Ritalin and other medications from students at Pinemount Elementary School and instead gave them folic acid.

On Wednesday, Boozer was formally charged with one count of child neglect and 11 counts of grand theft of a controlled substance.

She is due back in court Sept. 29.
