IRVING -- Irving High School students will receive corrected versions of their yearbooks on the last day of classes of the year nex Thursday after they were pulled when a sexually-offensive remark was found in placed of a cheerleader's name in a group photo.

Billy Rudolph, an Irving ISD spokesperson, said the investigation into how the remark made its way into the caption has revealed it was added after the copies had been approved by the adult in charge of the yearbook, and were made in the school, where the yearbook is produced.

Students are being questioned at this time in hopes of learning who was responsible for the change, but at this time no student has been identified. If a student is identified, they will be subject to Irving ISD discipline policies, according to Rudolph.

More than 300 of the yearbooks containing the remark were printed, but only about a dozen were distributed before the change was caught. However, the picture wound up on social media and now many students have seen it.
