SAN DIEGO (AP) - The San Diego school district has agreed to expunge the records of 31 high school students who were suspended for making an on-campus video featuring "twerking" dance moves.

U-T San Diego reports a legal agreement was reached Thursday. The district will erase mention of the discipline from the student records- meaning the suspensions won't show up on the students' transcripts when applying for college.

The students, mostly girls, were suspended from Scripps Ranch High School in May after the rump-shaking video was posted online. School officials said the students violated district policies against sexual harassment.

Parents of several students went to a lawyer after the school board said it couldn't overturn the suspensions. Attorney Ruth Hargrove says she's thrilled by the agreement.

The district says now it's time for everyone to move on.
