TAYLOR MILL, KY (FOX19) -

Officials at a Northern Kentucky high school are taking action after a video surfaced showing a fight between two female students.

The footage was posted to Facebook Monday by Nicole Williams, a ninth grade student at Scott High School who says school staff should have taken action sooner.

"Schools, they go on and on about bullying and how bullying should be stopped, how we should feel safe at school. I feel like those students weren't really safe at all because she was getting beat up while other teachers were just watching her and not fixing it at all,” said Williams.

A teacher did eventually break up the fight, according to school officials.

A spokesperson for the Kenton County School district says they're aware of the video and the students involved are being punished.

The school says they want to have a discussion about how these videos get online.

"Children have mobile devices and are encouraged to use them for educational purposes. But unfortunately when there's an incident like this where things get posted to social media, we have to have a discussion about being positive digital citizens," said Kenton County School District spokeswoman Jess Dykes.

No word yet on the students condition.

Williams tells us she has been suspended and is up for expulsion.

School officials would not confirm disciplinary action against anyone involved, citing student confidentiality.
