What is sexting?
Sexting is the act of sending sexually explicit messages or photos electronically, primarily between cell phones. This activity is frequently a “courtship ritual” behavior but can also been seen in the context of an abusive relationship. Sexting can also evolve into cyber bullying when the photo is distributed with the intent to damage the reputation of the victim.
Indianola Community School District students are prohibited from sending or posting electronic messages that are abusive, obscene, sexually oriented, threatening, harassing, damaging to another’s reputation, or illegal. This prohibition applies to conduct off school property. Any person taking, disseminating, transferring, or sharing obscene, sexually oriented, lewd, or otherwise illegal images or photographs will be disciplined according to school policy and may be reported to law enforcement.
