Teachers keep jobs despite forking prank

DAYTON, Ohio – Four Ohio teachers will keep their jobs after being accused of participating in a student Homecoming prank.

The Dayton Daily News ( reports that the Belmont High School teachers have been on paid leave for three weeks while the Dayton district investigated an allegation that they drove students off campus to participate in the prank. They agreed to a settlement Tuesday allowing them to keep their jobs.

District spokeswoman Jill Moberley said the teachers drove three students to a rival high school Oct. 3 for a prank involving placing plastic forks in the lawn and paper cups on a fence. A report said a Belmont student was punched in the face during the prank.
