Cyberbullying has emerged as one of the fastest growing issues faced by school leaders. It involves the use of technology to bully another person and can occur through the use of e-mail, instant messaging or texting, blogs, postings on websites, or through social media. The most common definition of cyberbullying is that it includes repeated, unwanted aggressive behavior over a period of time. The National Crime Prevention Council defines cyber-bullying as when "the Internet, cell phones or other devices are used to send or post text or images intended to hurt or embarrass another person." Every set of recommendations for dealing with cyberbullying suggests a clear policy about what constitutes bullying and how school staff will respond. They also encourage schools to focus on educating students and their families about responsible use of the Internet and other digital media and to adopt practices to that focus on stopping the harassment. Several steps for dealing with the use of social media, used to cyberbully, have been identified. First, develop a clear policy with a focus on educationally valuable use of the Internet. Effective policies are supported by curriculum and professional development. Teachers should be expected to have students use the Internet only for high quality, well-planned instructional activities. Second, implement a comprehensive program to educate students and their families about online safety and responsible use. Third, develop a plan to monitor Internet use at school. Fourth, have appropriate consequences for inappropriate use of the Internet or social networking sites. Include administrators, school counselors, school psychologists, and school resource officers in developing an monitoring the plan. Fifth, engage families in monitoring Internet use. Since most use occurs outside of school hours it is critical that parents understand the importance of monitoring their children's online activities and how they should respond when inappropriate use takes place.
