11 Anne Arundel Co. Students Disciplined For Cyberbullying

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Anne Arundel County Public Schools officials say 11 Annapolis High School students have been disciplined for cyberbullying.
    
Schools spokesman Bob Mosier says officials learned of the incident Monday and punishments were handed down Tuesday after an investigation into comments attached to a picture of a student posted on social media. He says a photo of a student taken without that student's knowledge was texted to other students and subsequently posted on social media.
    
School officials are treating the incident as cyberbullying and say it violated the school system's code of conduct.
    
Mosier says parents were notified of the punishments Tuesday, but he would not give details about the nature of the punishments. The school board's student handbook says punishments for cyberbullying can range from an office referral to expulsion.
