CYBERBULLYING

As our students gain more and more access to technology, they encounter exciting new learning opportunities as well as potentially harmful tools. So far, our rollout of Chromebooks for fourth--twelfth grade students has gone very smoothly. It is typically on personally owned devices, off the school network, where issues can more easily escalate.

What is cyberbullying?
"Cyberbullying is bullying that takes place using electronic technology. Electronic technology includes devices and equipment such as cell phones, computers, and tablets as well as communication tools including social media sites, text messages, chat, and websites.
Examples of cyberbullying include mean text messages or emails, rumors sent by email or posted on social networking sites, and embarrassing pictures, videos, websites, or fake profiles." Source: StopBullying.gov
