Students in 'twerking' video graduate: Attorney representing 6 students in video to file appeal
Last Updated: 181 days ago
SAN DIEGO - Students at Scripps Ranch High School who are at the center of the controversial "twerking" video were allowed to graduate on Tuesday.
Principal Ann Menna initially banned 31 students from attending prom and graduation programs.
The students were given a two-day suspension and have a permanent sexual harassment charge on their student records.
Attorney Ruth Hargrove, who is representing six students, told 10News an appeal will be filed this week. Hargrove says legal action will be pursued if the principal does not clear the records.
The American Civil Liberties Union came out against the principal, calling it excessive.
Once the appeal is filed, the school district has one month to determine the outcome.
