St. Nicholas of Tolentine School Cyberbullying Policy
Cyberbullying is defined as intentional cruelty to other by sending or posting hurtful and hate-filled messages and material using digital and social media technologies. This includes direct and indirect harassment and activities that are intended to damage the reputation and relationships of the intended student target. Cyberbullying encompasses any action that is intended to cause harm to another student via electronic means.
Saint Nicholas of Tolentine School will continue to define cyberbullying as any act that takes place on or immediately adjacent to school grounds, at any school-sponsored activity, on school provided transportation, at an official school event off campus, via the school Internet network, via a personal digital device on or immediately adjacent to school property, or off campus activities that cause or threaten to cause substantial disruption at school or interferes with the right of students to feel secure.
By sending hurtful text and picture messages, or posting hurtful comments and information on message boards, blogs, Twitter feeds, or by impersonating that student with the intent to harm his or her reputation, students are engaging in cyberbullying.
