LAS VEGAS (AP) - School officials and community members aren't faulting a Las Vegas Academy teacher for letting two students dress in Ku Klux Klan costumes during a classroom presentation on U.S. history.

But Clark County School District officials investigated and the school principal sent parents a letter calling the incident "inappropriate" after a photo of one of the students wearing a white robe and hooded mask outside class Jan. 9 was posted on social media.

Principal Scott Walker said there was no intention to harm or offend on the part of the students.

The Las Vegas Sun reports that several students, parents, teachers and one school board member backed the teacher at a Thursday meeting.

The teacher and student weren't identified, and district officials say he wasn't disciplined.
