WESTPORT, Conn. — The Westport School District shut down a private Facebook group last week that included about 200 students where offensive and defamatory posts were made targeting different genders, races, ethnicities and religions, according to the Westport News.

The Facebook group was brought to the attention of school officials by other concerned students, Westport News said.

Superintendent of Schools Colleen Palmer would not give details on members of the group but said students “directly involved and active” in it were assigned community service, according to Westport News.

Principal James D’Amico said there was no bullying aimed at specific individuals, the Westport News said.
