School faculty member suspended for inappropriate iPad photo


A faculty member with the Wadena-Deer Creek School District served a 10-day suspension after an "inapproriate" photo of him was discovered by students on a school-issued iPad, according to the Wadena Pioneer Journal.

The photo was found on Oct. 29 and viewed by at least five students. The newspaper says each iPad is password protected, but it is possible to view a slideshow of the user's recent photos.

The faculty member is now back on the job even though the school district's investigation is still ongoing.

The district uses iPads as a substitute for text books.
