The challenges and opportunities of technology in today's interconnected world are constantly evolving. At CSCE, we are committed to teaching our students to be responsible, respectful, effective, and ethical users of online information and resources. We work to foster the skills of digital citizenship in each student so that they can learn to make smart choices--online and in life.
Social Media Bullying and Cyberbullying
Cyberbullying, unlike “traditional” bullying, doesn’t just occur in the park or just outside of school. It occurs in a variety of venues and mediums in cyberspace and it occurs most often where children congregate.
As anyone, it is important to realize where cyberbullying occurs, since you can be there to either prevent it or take action if you see it occur.
Back when many students hung out in chat rooms, most of the cyberbullying reported took place in chat rooms. With the more recent changes in technology, the youth population has been drawn to social networking sites, like TikTok, and video sharing sites, like YouTube.
As a result, there has been an increase in reports of cyberbullying on social networking sites and video sharing sites. In addition, instant messaging and texting appear to be common ways in which youth are harassing others.
Even newer than social networking, video sharing, texting and instant messaging is the appearance of cyberbullying in portable gaming devices, in 3-D virtual worlds and social gaming sites, and in newer interactive sites such as Formspring and ChatRoulette.
When a student is suspected of or reported to be using electronic or digital communications to engage in cyberbullying against other students or staff, or to threaten district property, the investigation shall include documentation of the activity, identification of the source, and specific facts or circumstances that explain the impact or potential impact on school activity, school attendance, or the targeted student's educational performance.
Note: Penal Code 653.2 makes it a crime for a person to distribute personal identity information electronically with the intent to cause harassment by a third party and to threaten a person's safety or that of his/her family (e.g., placing a person's picture or address online so that he/she receives harassing messages). In addition, Penal Code 288.2 makes it a crime to send a message to a minor if the message contains matter that is sexual in nature with the intent of seducing the minor (i.e., sexting).
