VICTORIA, Texas (AP) - Some Victoria West High School students could be barred from high school graduation ceremonies as punishment for vandalism that left food, spray paint and other items covering parts of the school campus.

Superintendent Robert Jacklich says some of the students also could face criminal charges for what began last weekend as a senior prank but left about $4,000 in damages.

In a statement to The Victoria Advocate (http://bit.ly/1KJrBLK ), Jacklich says he’s met with students identified as participating in the vandalism and their parents. He says the students were given the opportunity to take responsibility and complete “duties, expectations and labor assignments” that could allow them to participate in Saturday’s graduation.

Investigators have determined as many as 60 students were involved but not all have been identified.
