Ben Davis band director resigns

March 8, 2012

Ben Davis High School's award-winning band director resigned suddenly Wednesday after he learned the school was in the process of having him fired. John Papandria is accused of having inappropriate communications with his students. Students, parents and Ben Davis staff were told Wednesday that Papandria was no longer employed by the Wayne Township school district. Students said the band director sent them texts that made them feel uncomfortable. Papandria has been at Ben Davis High School for almost eight years.
