    There are two kinds of Cyberthreats: (1) actual threats to hurt someone or commit suicide, and (2) online

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Because of First Amendment protections, schools do not have the legal ability to punish students for cyberbullying and Cyberthreats that occur on campus or through school technology.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    False. Students have a limited expectation of privacy on the district's Internet system and routine maintenance and
    monitoring should be expected. An individual search of computer and Internet use records can be conducted if there is a reasonable suspicion that the student has violated district policy, including policies against bullying. In addition, schools can place education-based restrictions on student speech that appears to be sponsored by the school or that is necessary to maintain an appropriate school climate. Although no current case law exists, the standard probably applies to student speech through the district Internet system or via cell phones used at school
