Student Pegged to "Inappropriate" List on Facebook

A student at Oak Park River Forest High School has been pegged to a list "ranking" 50 female students by the descriptions of their bodies.

The list, which the school calls "inappropriate," was circulated on Facebook and in a printed list, the Chicago Tribune reports.

The student allegedly involved is not in school this week, and a school spokeswoman told the Tribune that inappropriate use of technology can include expulsion. Administrators are asking parents for help to find out whether other students were involved. 

In a message posted on its website, the school asks that students, teachers and parents confiscate any copies of the list and to notify the school when they do. The message also reminds students to contact a counselor or any adult at the school if they have information about this or other cyberbullying episodes.

The school said it has notified the students named in the list and their parents.
