SOUTHLAKE (1080 KRLD) - Carroll ISD officials say they're punishing students involved in making a racist video over the weekend, but won't say what the punishment is.

The video was discovered on Twitter Saturday. In it several students, mostly girls, are seen sitting in a circle and shouting the "n" word at the camera.

The video wasn't made on school property, but the district says the student code of conduct applies.

After meeting with the parents and students involved last night, the Carroll ISD says in a statement that the district has handed down "consequences", although they would not specify what those were.

In a statement the district says, "it’s a tough social media world out there for our kids, for sure. But as Dragons, we are better than this."

According to the student code of conduct, punsihments range from a required parent meeting to suspension.
