Wake County students get suspended for off-campus online comments

Mar 14, 2017 by

Teenagers go home after school and spend much of their time online, but school rules about what they say and do follow them after the last bell rings.

Three students at Leesville Road Middle School in Raleigh found out their off-campus behavior isn’t off limits when they were disciplined last week for a viral video showing them making derogatory remarks about different racial and ethnic groups and chanting “KKK, KKK.”

The students ran afoul of a policy used by Wake County and other school systems nationally that warns students their “conduct at any time, place, or cyberspace, on or off campus” can be subject to punishment if it severely disrupts the school.
