Guiding students to the finish line...many paths, one goal: GRADUATION

Cyberbullying

What to know:

  • Never respond to harassing or rude comments.
  • Save or print the evidence.
  • Talk to your parents or guardian if you are harassed; get help reporting this to your ISP, school, or local law enforcement.
  • Respect others online.
  • Only share your password with your parent or guardian.
  • Change your passwords often.
  • Use privacy settings to block unwanted messages.
  • Think before posting or sending photos - they could be used to hurt you.
  • Contact the site administrator if someone creates a social networking page in your name.

What to report:

  • Anyone you don't know who asks you for personal information, photos, or videos.
  • Inappropriate or obscene material from people or companies you don't know.
  • Misleading URLs on the Internet that point you to sites containing harmful or inappropriate materials rather than what you were looking for.
  • Anyone who sends you photos or videos containing obscene content of individuals 18 and younger (the possession, manufacturing, or distributing of child pornography is illegal)
  • Anyone who asks you to meet in person for sexual activities (no one should be making sexual invitations to you online – and it’s an especially serious crime for adults to do it).
  • If any of the above happens to you or a friend, tell an adult you trust and report it to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children's CyberTipline at https://report.cybertip.org.
