BULLYING AND CYBERBULLING
Cyber bullying includes the transmission of communications, posting of harassing messages, direct threats, or other harmful texts, sounds, or images on the Internet, social networking sites, or other digital technologies using a telephone, computer, or any wireless communication device.

Students should 1) save and print any messages sent to them that they feel constitutes cyber bullying; and 2) notify a teacher, counselor, dean of students, or administration so matters can be investigated. Any student who engages in cyber bullying on school premises, or off campus in a manner that causes or is likely to cause a substantial disruption of a school activity or school attendance, shall be subject to discipline with any or all of the following consequences: 1-5 day suspension, referral to School Safety Advocate, SMPD notified, Incident Review Conference (IRC), and/or possible recommendation for expulsion.
