A Chandler Public Schools officials said they are aware of the racist picture, which was posted on Snapchat Wednesday night.

"The district has no tolerance for hateful depictions and captions regarding any student and has and will continue to address this unacceptable, despicable behavior whenever it occurs," the statement said.

"No details of the districts disciplinary action toward the student responsible for this behavior can be made available due to federal and state laws that require confidentiality," the statement said. "The student responsible for this behavior is not at school."
