A high school in Kettering, Ohio, reportedly banned Confederate flags from flying on vehicles after students recently begun doing so.

The Dayton Daily News first reported that the policy resulted from an agreement between the superintendent of Kettering City Schools and the president of the Dayton NAACP branch. The agreement occurred after five vehicles were spotted at the school flying the flag in recent weeks, according to WKYC.

Just last month, the school announced that it would allow students to fly or wear the flag before or after school hours. A parent complaint to the NAACP ultimately prompted the ban, which was put in place on Monday.
