Unsocial Media: Cyberbullying, Sexting and How to Regulate Communication in the Digital Age
While social media can prove to have pedagogical benefits, it also has the all-to-common potential to serve as a vehicle for bullying and harassing other students. What control do school officials have over social media as used by staff? To what extent can school officials discipline students for inappropriate communications, even when they occur off school grounds and outside the school day? Can school officials “search” student electronic devices?This presentation by attorneys from Pullman and Comey, LLC will discuss these issues and the extreme care that school officials must take when dealing with images that could be deemed to constitute child pornography, including a review of the potential civil and criminal liability for mishandling them.- No Charge for participants from CAS member schools.
