MUSTANG, Okla. (AP) — A suburban Oklahoma City school district has suspended a ninth-grade student and is investigating whether a substitute teacher whose photograph was taken on a cell phone was asleep on the job.
Mustang school district officials say a Mustang Mid-High School student snapped a picture of what appears to be a man with his eyes closed behind a school desk last week.
A district spokeswoman told The Oklahoman a faculty member saw the photo on a social media website and reported it to the principal.
It’s not clear if the photo was taken during class time.
School officials say cell phones are allowed on school grounds, but can’t be used during class.
The names of the student and the substitute teacher under investigation weren’t released.
