CINCINNATI (AP) - Parents of four students alleging their children were expelled over rap music videos have reached a settlement with the Ohio school district and others they sued.

The Legal Aid Society of Southwest Ohio says an agreement was reached Monday in the federal lawsuit charging violation of free speech and other constitutional rights. It was filed in September against the Northwest Local School District in suburban Cincinnati, Colerain Township Trustees and some police.

There was no answer at the school district offices Tuesday night. Messages were left for the township administration and police.

Court records say a hearing on the settlement is scheduled for Wednesday.

The parents said their children were unfairly expelled from Colerain High School. The district said students were disciplined over threats at school and in social media.
