Attorney General Biden and Lt. Gov. Denn Announce Plan to Combat Cyberbullying

March 28, 2012

General Beau Biden and Lt. Governor Matt Denn announced a plan to put in place an effective statewide policy to combat cyberbullying in Delaware’s schools.  The plan includes statewide public hearings to gather information to be used in developing the cyberbullying policy, and legislation designed to help school districts enforce the new policy.  The plan consists of four steps:

1.      Statewide public hearings in April to gather factual evidence from school administrators and parents about the type of off-campus activity causing disruption in our schools.

2.      The drafting of a statewide cyberbullying policy based upon the evidence gathered at the hearings.

3.      Issuance of a regulation by the state’s Department of Education requiring adoption of the statewide cyberbullying policy by public school districts and charter schools.

4.      A new state law that will allow the Attorney General’s office to defend school districts and charter schools if their good faith enforcement of the statewide cyberbullying policy is subject to legal challenge.
