L-P wants open discussion about social media’s role in bullying

Posted by wlpo on February 9, 2015

Does your teenager have a Facebook or Instagram account? Under a new law, their principal or superintendent can get hold of their login information.

As of January 1st, schools can request a student or their parent to provide social media passwords if the district thinks a student is breaking a rule like cyber-bullying. L-P Superintendent Steve Wrobleski says he realizes this is a big change and hopes it triggers a bigger conversation about bullying.

To help jumpstart the conversation, L-P is hosting a Town Hall meeting Thursday, February 19th in the school auditorium. Topics will include bullying and the new law giving schools access to student’s social media accounts.

The meeting starts at 6.
