Cyberbullying Workshop:  Cyberbullying Workshop Overview Educator Resources Discipline and Legal Issues Agenda Three breaks for questions Agree or Disagree :  Agree or Disagree Cyberbullying is most often a continuation of in-school bullying. Students most often involved in cyberbullying appear to be the “in-crowd” students. “Wannabes” appear to be the most frequent targets. It’s safe to assume that the student posting the harmful online material is the originator of the problem. Agree or Disagree :  Agree or Disagree Cyberthreats could be related to online role-playing gaming. Material posted online is often more of a “real” threat, than verbal threats. There are reports of cyberbullying leading to suicide, school violence, school failure, and school avoidance. The harm caused by cyberbullying may be far greater than traditional bullying.

Yes! Schools have an obligation to protect students and/or employees from harassing, threatening, or bullying conduct. Discipline & Legal Issues:  Discipline & Legal Issues That said, as you will see, balancing this obligation with the concurrent obligation to respect students’ speech rights often makes this quite difficult Tinker Standard Tinker v. Des Moines Independent School District, 1969 “Considered to be the high watermark of students’ First Amendment rights” Discipline & Legal Issues:  Discipline & Legal Issues Law Enforcement should be contacted if educator becomes aware of: Death threats or threats of other forms of violence to a person or property Excessive intimidation or extortion Threats or intimidation that involve any form of bias or discrimination Any evidence of sexual exploitation What Do You Think? :  What Do You Think? A common scenario recently has been students creating false online profiles of administrators and teachers. Students posted parody on claiming the principal smoked pot, kept beer at school and liked having sex with students. Principal suspended students and sued family for damaging his reputation. What do you think? The Verdict! :  The Verdict! Judge finds suspension of student for MySpace parody of school principal unconstitutional. “Hermitage School District violated the First Amendment free-speech rights of a student when it punished him for creating a parody profile of his principal on the website because the District failed to show that the profile - which was created off-campus - caused any disruption to the school day, a federal judge ruled late yesterday.” What Do Think? :  What Do Think? A website is created about a teacher that indicated “Why She Should Die” and solicited contributions for a “hit man.” Verdict guess? Here the court found there was substantial disruption, because the teacher was so upset she had to take leave. What Do Think? :  What Do Think? One student’s website depicted his assistant principal in a Viagra ad, as a cartoon character having sex, and as a participant in a Nazi book burning. Verdict guess? “Appalling and inappropriate,” the court conceded. But no disruption, no grounds for discipline. What Would You Do?:  What Would You Do? A parent brings the principal a disturbing posting she has found online posted by a student. It reads: Philosophy So that’s the only way to solve arguments with all you $%&*heads out there. I just kill you! God I cant wait till I can kill you people. Feel no remorse. No shame. I don’t care if I live or die in the shootout, all I want to do is to kill and injure as many of you pricks as I can, especially a few people. Like (name of student). What Would You Do?:  Ben reports seeing Tony using his cell phone in the locker room taking pictures of students while they are changing for PE. What Would You Do? What Would You Do?:  Sam, a high school student, has publicly acknowledged that he is gay. Jerry, another student, has created a profile that focuses on Sam. Jerry’s profile is entirely focused on condemning homosexuality. Sam and his parents have reported this site to the school and are demanding the school have the site taken down. Sam is now fearful when he comes to school as he has had some negative incidents that appear to be related to this site What Would You Do? Summing It Up:  Summing It Up “Substantial Disruption” is a high hurdle for schools. Whether or not you can impose formal discipline may end up being the least important question – Stopping the harm is the most important objective Schools can always educate. Schools should regulate with caution. Beef up your bullying policy to include cyberbullying.
