LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- JCPS and Metro Police want to know who posted explicit pictures of high school students on the Instagram photo sharing app.
JCPS spokesman Ben Jackey says these "inappropriate" pictures involve students from several high schools, and not all of them are JCPS schools.
Jackey tells WDRB the pictures on Instagram show students nude, partially nude or altered so the students appear nude.
Students became aware of the social media postings Thursday, Jan. 16, and school officials started interviewing possible victims.
JCPS security officials also notified Metro Police.
Jackey could not say if the pictures involve solely female students, how many pictures were posted or which schools are involved.
JCPS is recommending that all middle and high school principals send letters home Friday, explaining the incident and giving tips to avoid bullying or harassment on social media.
This is only a recommendation to those principals, and district officials are not guaranteeing that all students will bring home a letter.
