Montco School District, Police Investigate Alleged Photo Scandal

LANSDALE, Pa. (CBS) — The North Penn School District says they are working with local law enforcement officials following allegations students may have shared inappropriate pictures and videos online, according to a statement on the school district's website.

The statement says this week North Penn School District administration came to understand that there is considerable discussion among some high school students about allegations that students of their school community may have shared inappropriate pictures and videos via an online format.

The statement says the school district and local law enforcement officials are working together on this matter and take alleged activities such as these very seriously.

North Penn parents are outraged after word came down from the school district about allegations some students may have shared inappropriate pictures and videos online.

"Especially not pictures. You just don't do that," said parent Katy Joyce.

Katy Joyce and other parents told CBS 3 Eyewitness News they found out about the situation from the district late Friday.

"I think kids should really be careful about what they put on the internet. Myself as a parent, I drill my kids all the time about what they can and cannot do," said Joyce.

"Be careful about what you put out there, because it may end up when you fill out a job application," said parent Carine Mallis.

"If you put something on the internet it's there forever. Same with texting. Anything you do you just have to be so careful," said Joyce.

In the statement, the school district says it is very important that anyone with any knowledge, which would contribute to an investigation of such activity directly, contact police.
