MASON, OH (FOX19) - Officials with Mason City Schools are responding to a new scandal involving racism.
A student has apparently posted an offensive video containing several racial slurs to social media.
FOX19 NOW has blurred the video because the student featured in the clip is a juvenile.
Just a short time ago, the district released a statement:
School officials say they are grateful to the students who reported the situation and that it will be investigated fully. They say the investigation could result in disciplinary action.
This is just the latest in a series of racial incidents the district has faced in the past couple of months, including racist SnapChat messages posted by students, a teacher telling a black student they would be lynched, and another teaching calling a black student to the front of a classroom to touch her hair.
