Valley Southwoods students fined for damaging ceiling while filming social media video

A failed attempt to make a fun social video could cost some high school students dearly. A group of students from Valley Southwoods apparently wanted to go viral. On Friday, a group of male students threw a student in the air at school. The goal was for the student to do a flip once it was thrown in the air, which would be recorded and posted on social media. The student ended up hitting the ceiling and causing damage to the school building. No one was injured in the incident and all of the students involved know each other. District officials decided not to formally discipline the students. Instead, they plan to have all 11 students cover the cost of damage to the ceiling as well. Parents and guardians of those involved have been notified of what happened and of the plan to charge students. More from Marcus McIntosh:
