If you can't deal with cyber bullying the Government's intervention cannot ever help you, because it is too late to change your "loser" mentality. The Government does not care a bit about teenage suicide, but it's own power over us all through censorship.

Totally unreasonable. They stated it was "policy" then changed it to "guideline" ; when it didn't work for "them"!

Sounds like the students won. Sounds like the school district admin has their heads up Nancy Reagan's Rear.

Does the school district not teach the constitution?

I actually don't think that this is totally unreasonable, especially if you are the person that the "demeaning" ; text is referring to. Cyberbulling is a huge problem, and social media takes it to a whole new level. If this policy is policed by reasonable people, I think that it should stay and hopefully a few more self-esteems will stay intact.
