ABSTRACT
The article discusses cyberbullying and what school districts can do to prevent it through policies that are designed to prevent incidents. Cyberbullying can take place through several media including the Internet or text messaging. The bullying can sometimes take place between former friends who have had a falling out. Several states have created laws to prevent cyberbullying including California where a law outlines the disciplinary measures that can be used on bullies. A case before the Third U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals about a high school student who created a fake MySpace page mocking his/her principal is discussed. Student Avery Doninger claimed that her school violated her right to free speech because of comments she made in her blog.
