ZIONSVILLE, Ind. (Nov. 14, 2014)– FOX59 was alerted Friday of a bracket-style ranking system created by students at Zionsville High School.

The bracket allegedly was made in order to rank girls at the school in relation to physical attractiveness.

Fake sponsors were also attached to the bracket. A Twitter account had been created for the bracket, but has since been deleted.

According to Zionsville Community school officials, this is not the first time such an incident has occurred.

Superintendent of Zionsville Community Schools Scott Robison issued the following statement to FOX59:

On Wednesday evening at 9:23 ZCHS officials received a report on their anonymous tip line that a bracket site had been created.  The investigation began immediately and moved more swiftly as soon as students arrived at school on Thursday morning.  Through a review of the public twitter feeds of several students and student interviews, school leaders were able to address the matter.  This is not the first time we have dealt with students making inappropriate choices on social media that have led to disciplinary consequences.  These brackets have no place in our school.  In this particular instance our high school officials were able to successfully have the bracket removed from social media within hours of the initial report.

It is unclear how many students were involved or what type of disciplinary consequences were set.
