The principal of the school contacted the Office of Equity and Inclusion/Professional Standards after receiving a complaint from a student's parent.

Teacher David Swinyar is accused of using the N-word with his students. He also allegedly said to students, "You should not be dating all these different African-American boys because they are not worth it."

Swinyar was also accused of demeaning students by calling them "idiots" last October, according to the report. 

A 10-day suspension without pay for Swinyar was approved Tuesday night by the Duval County School Board.
