Cliff Pinckard, cleveland.com |

The superintendent of Rocky River Schools says he is “disgusted” and “shocked,” citing a video that shows two male high school teachers discussing a female student.

“Regarding the video of our staff members’ discussion that is circulating in the community, I’m disgusted, I’m shocked, and as the father of a teenage daughter in this district, I’m angry,” Superintendent Michael Shoaf said in a statement released Thursday night. “What was stated by these staff members was not only inappropriate and unprofessional, it was offensive.”

Meanwhile, the Rocky River Police Department confirmed Thursday that it will not pursue criminal charges against six high school staff members who reportedly discussed a female student in an “inappropriate manner.” The teachers were place on administrative leave and the district says they will remain on leave until its investigation is completed.
