Rocky River schools Superintendent Michael Shoaf released results from an investigation into high school staff members accused of inappropriately discussing a student, which led to five teachers resigning and one retiring.

The investigation found photographs of a student, taken in a classroom, on the phone of one of the teachers, according to a statement from Shoaf sent out on Wednesday. Some teachers were also found to be in an “inappropriate text chain regarding staff members,” which did not contain photos of students.
