Irving ISD

IRVING (CBSDFW.COM) – The Irving Independent School District has caught one yearbook student staff member who they consider a suspect in last month’s scandal.

Irving High School distributed 13 of 225 printed yearbooks before discovering the books contained a derogatory comment about a cheerleader. Beneath a group shot of the junior varsity cheerleaders, the words “Ugly Hoe” were printed next to one of the girl’s names.

All 13 yearbooks were recovered and returned for re-print, according to Irving ISD press secretary, Billy Rudolph.

Jostens will republish the yearbooks at a minimal expense to the district due its long standing relationship with Irving ISD. It takes about 3-4 weeks to republish the yearbooks, which the district will redistribute the last week of June.

Criminal charges weren’t filed, but Irving ISD said it will reprimand the student according to the district code of conduct.

Anyone who had an account and was part of the yearbook staff at Irving High School had access. That practice has now been changed, according to Rudolph, and in the future all student access will be prohibited after the final faculty review.
