Abstract

This paper investigates how school officials can make sound decisions based on appropriate legal precedent when faced with incidents of student cyberspeech targeting staff members. In particular, this study examined court decisions, law review articles, state and federal legislation, online sources, and newspaper articles relating to student speech issues. Analyzing these decisions offers some insight for school administrators faced with these instances. Trends from various cases at different court levels are discussed, and some recommendations and tips for school administrators are provided.
