MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

A video posted on social media apparently showing a Montgomery Public Schools teacher bullying a student is under investigation by the school district.

According to a Facebook post by someone identifying herself as the student's sister, the video, which was originally posted on Snapchat, was recorded at Jefferson Davis High School.

MPS spokesperson Tom Salter released this statement Thursday:

"After viewing what appears to be glaringly unprofessional actions by a teacher recording and posting this video (and possibly other MPS employees in the room), the system is launching an investigation into the matter. The actions on the video do not represent the policies of MPS or what is expected from a Montgomery Public Schools educator. After the investigation is over,  appropriate and necessary actions will be taken against anyone found to have violated MPS policies."

In the video, a woman is filming what appears to be a lone male student being taught by a teacher. The woman narrating the video makes fun of the student for “being the only one in the classroom."

Later on, the woman tells the student "we need to put this on your Snapchat so all your friends can see.” All the while, the student does not speak and covers his face with his hoodie. A man, possibly another MPS employee, can be seen in the video laughing at the narrator's commentary.

*WARNING: THIS VIDEO CONTAINS PROFANITY*

The video had been shared more than 800 times and viewed more than 33,000 times.

WSFA 12 News has been in contact with the family of the student who says they plan on filing a complaint with the school system.
