Pickerington Local Schools have rescinded the promotion of an assistant principal after a social media post showed profane language critical of police. 

The post was made earlier this month by Damicka Bates of Tussing Elementary. Bates  said she and her family took a trip downtown to see the artwork related to the recent protests. One of the photos was an uncropped version showing her daughter posing by graffiti with a phrase critical of police. She later apologized.
