CAMDEN COUNTY, N.J. -

Two teachers and a principal on Monday pleaded guilty to charges related to physical relationships between the teachers and students at a Camden County high school, Camden County Prosecutor Warren W. Faulk announced.

The prosecutor's office says Jeff Logandro, 32 and 27-year-old Daniel Michielli admitted to engaging in improper and physical relationships with two female students.

The two men are former teachers at Triton Regional High School.

The Camden County Prosecutor says both men must forfeit their jobs with the Black Horse Regional School District and will be barred from holding public employment in New Jersey.

The prosecutor's office says that Catherine DePaul, 55, also pleaded guilty Monday to a disorderly persons offense and Failure to Report a Crime. DePaul, who was the school's principal, failed to contact local law enforcement when she was informed the teachers were engaging in sexual contact with students, the prosecutor's office said.

Following the guilty pleas, Black Horse Pike Regional School District Superintendent John Golden posted a letter on the school district's website to address the charges.

"We, as a community, have a shared commitment to doing what is best for students so that they may be prepared for tomorrow's challenges," the letter read.

"The faculty and staff understand that it is not acceptable to ignore that commitment, nor will actions counter to that commitment be tolerated. We embrace the idea that honesty, respect, and concern for other students are eternal and life-enhancing values."

The letter continued to say the district has redoubled its efforts to "educate, train, monitor and motivate" all of its staff, teachers, administrators and students.

Investigators say two other defendants involved in the case still face charges.
