Several Roswell High School students were disciplined after naked photos were allegedly shared on an online file sharing service, school officials said.
Some of the students questioned by administrators admitted to circulating a Dropbox account containing the inappropriate images of students, Fulton County School District spokeswoman Susan Romanick said in a statement.
The account has been disabled, which she said limits the district’s ability to determine the “types of images involved, whether they involve current or former students or who may have accessed the account.” The statement also said, “There is no truth to the rumor that sports teams have been the account’s primary users.”
Roswell police were asked to help investigate the incident since the alleged activity occurred off-campus, Romanick said.
“We want to reinforce to students and the community that accessing or sharing inappropriate images, whether intentional or accidental, can carry disciplinary consequences as well as possible criminal charges,” the statement said. “We expect our students to exhibit better judgment and to show more respect for others.”
Last week, similar alleged activity led to disciplinary action against nearly four dozen Union County High School students, AJC.com previously reported. The district said 46 students were allegedly circulating nude photos of students around the school.
