NEW PHILADELPHIA, Ohio– Seniors at Dover High School will not face criminal charges for vandalizing New Philadelphia High School in May.

Instead, the Tuscarawas County Prosecutor’s Office told FOX 8, the graduates will perform community service and write a letter of apology.

The teens paid the school district more than $10,000 in damages.

Police said they spray-painted newly installed customized window film at the high school and a middle school.

The specialized window tint included images of the school mascot, the Quaker, and messages about what is expected of students, including responsibility and respect.

The prosecutor’s office said 17 students took part in the incident; 12 of them marked the windows.
