SPRINGFIELD – Authorities are investigating an alleged racist video involving a Kickapoo student. 

The video was shared on various social media platforms. It had quote “incredibly offensive content, including statements of racism, with suggestions of violence.”

Monday, May 13, the Springfield Police Department was asked by school police to conduct a follow-up investigation.

Last week, parents received a letter assuring them that the maximum scope of discipline was applied for the student who posted the video. But, the law does not allow the school to be specific on disciplinary actions.
