2 disciplined in search at Iowa school

ATLANTIC, Iowa (AP) -- Officials say two staff members will be disciplined for their roles in an alleged illegal strip-search of several girls at Atlantic High School.

Superintendent Dan Crozier didn't name the staff members or specify the measures that will be taken.

Crozier said Thursday that the discipline could include an "array" of action, including a change of duties or suspension. The school board determines disciplinary measures.

The move follows an internal investigation into the incident in August. The report earlier this week confirmed the incident, but it didn't conclude whether school policy or state law was followed, or whether any faculty members should be disciplined.

Several girls were searched over an alleged theft in a gym class.
