How to Protect Yourself from Cyberbullying

Cyberbullying
Cyberbullying is the use of communication technologies to support deliberate, repeated, and hostile behavior that is intended to harm others.  Cyberbullying is like bullying, but takes place on internet social networks or by email or text message.  The barrier provided by electronic communications can make bullying more intense.  It can be easier to say something online than directly to a person.  Cyberbullying may seem harmless, but it can be very painful for the person targeted. 

Why Speak Out?
The presence cyberbullying can cause physical and emotional harm to students.  You deserve a school environment that is free from coercion and threats where you can focus on education and developing the skills you need to meet your goals in life.
