Technology is part of our everyday relationships, and it opens the door to technological relational abuse – cyberbullying.  Cyberbullying is willful and repeated harm inflicted through the medium of electronic text and can be as damaging as face to face bullying. Utilize the tools below to help your students and other technology users understand how dangerous cyber-bullying is and know how to effectively prevent and respond to it.

Rates of Cyberbullying

Most youth do not engage in cyberbullying. In Broward County our cyberbullying rates are significantly lower than the nation. Approximately 3 students out of a class of 25 report being cyberbullied (YRBS 2015).  Some do, but most don’t.  But we want to get those rates even lower!
