San Diego Unified School District will clear the records of the 31 students at Scripps Ranch High School who made a viral twerking video.
The video first surfaced in March this year.
Initially, school officials banned the students from attending prom and graduation programs. The students were also given a two-day suspension and received a permanent sexual harassment charge on their student records.
The attorney for three of the students told 10News that the district agreed to wipe the punishment from the records. Students involved were also allowed to go to prom and graduate.
The district released the following statement:
“After further review, a mutual agreement has been reached that is in the best interest of the students and the district. The parents, students, school and district are ready to move beyond this incident and focus on the upcoming school year. The district cannot provide any further details since this is a student discipline issue and therefore confidential.”
