EHS Assistant Principal Ricky Britt said he participated in an internet safety course last summer that detailed laws and acts enacted in recent years to protect children when they’re online. As part of these measures, schools have been asked to help educate students about cyberbullying — using technology, often social media sites like Facebook, to publicly humiliate, harass or threaten someone.
“Cyberbullying in this day and time is getting to be worse,” Britt said. “A lot of the incidents are just not surfacing.”
