Officials: Students found sharing sexually explicit texts
District officials say more than a handful of underage students at Valley Central High School in Montgomery were found sharing sexually explicit texts.
Superintendent Richard Hooley said Tuesday by phone that the group of students involved were found with nude and partially nude photos. District officials wouldn't comment on whether the pictures were of the same group of students, the exact number of students or their grades. Hooley did say that the images depict underage teenage boys and girls.
Montgomery police said some of the explicit photos were knowingly sent by Central Valley High School students, but others were sent without permission.
Students who aren't involved in the scandal told News 12 that the students in the sexting scandal are freshman and sophomores and that one of those students told a staff member about the sexually explicit text messages.
The pictures surfaced more than a week ago, according to authorities. Police say the students have been disciplined and that their parents have been notified. According to Montgomery Police Department Chief Arnold Amthor, the issue is unlikely to go any further.
Superintendent Hooley says a student education course on sexting is in the works, as well as a separate one for parents.
