Teachers Keep Jobs Despite Participating In High School Prank


Four Belmont High School teachers were placed on three week paid leave after being accused of participating in a student Homecoming prank, according to the Dayton Daily News.

The newspaper reported that the settlement came late Tuesday morning, but district officials have declined to reveal details of the agreement made between the administration, teacher’s union and the four high school teachers.

According to district spokeswoman Jill Moberley, all four high school teachers allegedly drove three students to a rival high school on Oct. 3 as part of Spirit Week.

Moberley added that students are not allowed in employees’ personal vehicles without advance permission.

An incident report provided by the school district said the students were transported at about 6 p.m. to carry out the prank, which involved placing plastic forks in the lawn and paper cups on a fence, the Dayton Daily News reported.

“All have various levels of involvement,” Romick said, declining to provide further details citing that he had not yet seen the final paperwork.
