Students suspect that their teachers are aliens after bizarre occurrences.
The role of Delilah was originally written for Charisma Carpenter. She turned it down because she felt the role was too similar to her character Cordelia on Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997). Sarah Michelle Gellar, the title star of Buffy, also turned down a role in The Faculty (1998).
You got to pick up the line. God damn it! Get off the fucking field you limp ass blow jobs!
(at around 31 mins) When Coach Willis and Mrs. Olsen enter the faculty lounge, they walk to the water cooler. Mrs. Olsen splashes water on her face and getting some of her hair wet. In the next shot, her hair is dry and perfectly brushed.
The female teacher who was decapitated only to have her alien-controlled head rejoin her body, is seen (also very much alive) wearing a scarf around her neck, presumably to hide the scar.
The original uncut version of the film included a character named Venus (played by Kidada Jones) who was in about five scenes. All her scenes were cut. She is shown in some TV previews for the film, as well as Faculty/Tommy Hilfinger ads and commercials. She is also visible in a scene in the theatrical version, standing next to Gabe (Usher) in Mr Furlong's (Jon Stewarts) science class when they are looking at the "new species" in the aquarium.
