School administrators said the student who posted a Craigslist ad titled "Two slaves for sale" with a photo of two high school students will be suspended for ten days.
The school district said it will decide whether the student will be removed, expelled or moved to an alternative school in Clay County.
Officials began investigating the ad with two Fleming Island High School students in it Wednesday night after it was posted to Craigslist.
It was then shared on Facebook by someone who was disturbed by it.
"I was searching through the farms and garden section of craigslist and stumbled upon this," Lexis Potter, who posted it to Facebook, said. "It's a sick, disgusting 'joke' and a horrible reflection upon this school and students."
The post was shared hundreds of times and had 100 comments before she took it down. Schools says the student who posted the photo is a male and a senior at Fleming Island High School.
The students in the photo commented on the Facebook post and said they were going to the school with their parents to talk to administrators about the ad.
"I'm just really aggravated and I'm surprised somebody would do that to me," Thalia Solomon said.
Several people who commented on the photo called for whoever posted it to be suspended.
The Clay County school district said the student, a male senior, was suspended and will be moved to an alternative school in Clay County.
The Clay County school district sent Action News Jax a statement:
