dc.description.abstractWith the advent of smartphones, social media, and other communication technologies, digital media is playing a more significant role in the daily lives of adolescents in the United States. This widespread use of technology among youth has led to new problems for school administration. One such problem is cyberbullying, in which digital media is used to intimidate or threaten others. School administrators now face the demanding task of maintaining a safe environment conducive to learning without overstepping their authority when responding to students’ activities in cyberspace. This thesis will examine the elements of effective school policies that have been used to address cyberbullying and explore the boundaries of such policies. By looking at the legal issues faced by school administrators enforcing cyberbullying policies and the core components of successful cyberbullying programs and policies, this thesis will identify which elements are key to developing effective cyberbullying programs and avoiding legal complications when these programs are implemented.en_US
