“Sexting” Policy

“Sexting” Policy

It is a policy that “a student may not possess, view, send, or share pictures or text having sexual content while the student is on school grounds, at school-sponsored events or on school buses and other vehicles provided by IPS. This policy strictly prohibits sexual material in electronic or any other form and includes, but is not limited to, sexual material contained in a cellular telephone, camera phone, or personal digital assistant and sexual material transmitted by text message, email, or any electronic communication device. A student who violates this policy is subject to

suspension or expulsion.” Students and parents need to be aware of the consequences – some of them life-altering – of having sexual material at school, including on your cell phone or other electronic communication device.
