On Friday, Romick said the Dayton Education Association plans to take it a step further by stressing teachers should not at any time be transporting students in their own vehicles.
“That’s a message we are going to echo from the union to the teachers so this doesn’t happen in any other circumstances,” he said.
An incident report provided by the school district said the students were transported about 6 p.m. to commit a homecoming prank, placing plastic forks in the lawn and paper cups on a fence. The report said a Belmont student was punched in the face by a Meadowdale student during the prank.
Romick said Tuesday that none of the teachers were present when the student was assaulted because they had already left the premises. Romick also said the student who was hit had driven his own vehicle to the school. Moberley said no disciplinary action was taken against students involved in the incident.
