CENTRAL- School leaders have disciplined a junior high school student after she took pictures, possibly video, of another student changing in the girls' locker room this week and then posted the footage on YouTube. It happened at Central Middle School.
Superintendent Michael Faulk said he could not discuss the penalty since it involves a student, but said there were strict consequences. Parents of the girl who was recorded reported the incident to the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office. A spokesperson for the sheriff's office said deputies investigated the incident but no charges have been filed.
Faulk said the incident is one of the problems the system faces since it allows students to use devices like smartphones and tablets in school. But, Faulk added policies are being changed to prohibit similar issues in the future.
Faulk told WBRZ News 2 there is a discussion about possible changes, including setting up more supervision in dressing rooms.
The recording was made after P.E. class and has been removed from YouTube, Faulk said.
