GREENWICH - A beleaguered Greenwich High School music teacher accused of bullying students will keep his job.

School board members unanimously voted Wednesday in favor of reinstating John Yoon. They say Yoon's punishment was served during his suspension since March.

The vote came after an independent arbitrator's report released last week said the district had reason to fire Yoon for his actions.

Yoon is due back to work Monday morning.

Board members say the decision is not final and can be appealed.
