STREETSBORO, Ohio-- The Streetsboro High School marching band program was suspended following allegations of hazing and bullying, the district superintendent said on Friday.
Earlier on Friday, Streetsboro City School District Superintendent Michael Daulbaugh announced the band's director and assistant director were placed on paid administrative leave, pending the results of the investigation.
He later told FOX 8 News the program is temporarily suspended. The district is also looking for substitutes to come oversee the band.
"After the recent band camp held at Camp Muskingum, I received allegations that some band members may have been hazed, demeaned, and belittled during camp activities in direct violation of established Streetsboro City School Board policies that prohibit hazing and bullying," Daulbaugh said in a statement on Friday morning.
