EDUCATE TODAY WITH A PRESENTATION ON CYBERBULLYING

Today, with all the social networks accessible to kids and teens, it’s very easy for teachers, administrators,and parents to misunderstand the harms of the internet.  It’s also easy for students to forget that there is a real person behind every user name and that the consequences of negative posts and comments can have life-long consequences.

We all must understand what cyberbullying is and how much pressure and pain it can put on our young people.  That’s where we can help you. You can schedule a presentation through this website for a David’s Legacy Foundation speaker come talk with your school or work community about the dangers of cyberbullying and what they can do to stop it. These speakers will educate students, parents, and staff on what cyberbullying is, provide a brief overview of the laws, and how they can help protect young people from being targets of this abuse.

David’s Law

“David’s Law” or SB 179 passed in the 85thlegislative session, was signed by Governor Greg Abbott on June 9, 2017, and went into effect Sept 1, 2017.  “David’s Law” requires school districts to include cyberbullying in their district bullying policies and notify a child’s parents if he or she is a victim or alleged aggressor of bullying. The law allows schools to combat and prevent cyberbullying by empowering them to investigate and address off-campus cyber-assisted bullying if it materially affects the school environment. It allows for schools to collaborate with law enforcement when serious or life-threatening cyberbullying situations arise. “David’s Law” gives parents and courts new tools to protect cyberbullying victims and strengthens options for schools and prosecutors in dealing with some of the most egregious forms of cyberbullying, such as suicide baiting.  In recognition of bullying as a mental health issue, “David’s Law” alsoencourages schools to invest in counseling and rehabilitation services for both victims and aggressors of bullying.  Want to read the entire “David’s Law”?
