NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – Administrators and faculty at an Oklahoma high school are preparing for a protest by students upset with the handling of rape allegations.

Scott Beck, principal of Norman High School, said in a letter to parents that sexual assault victims’ advocates were organizing the Monday protest after an alleged rape involving two students that occurred off campus two months ago.

Beck said in the letter the school "took the strongest disciplinary action against the alleged assailant" and the Norman Police Department was investigating. A copy of the letter was posted on the website of The Oklahoman.

The newspaper reported that a small group of students had begun a social media campaign on behalf of three female Norman High students who alleged they had been raped by the same male student.
