“We have our own systems locked down pretty tight,” Lapham said. “Students can’t access YouTube, Facebook, or anything like that. We have our own Facebook page to monitor things in the community. We do know that there are things students may be doing, but we can’t really tell if they don’t do it here.”
She said her school board has been working with the state of Delaware to create cyberbullying policies. She said she was not familiar with Biden and Sokola’s recent legislation, but thinks it is a step in the right direction to protect public school students.
Conlon said she thinks Biden’s plan will help public schools, including her own, and knowing the Department of Justice is willing to protect public schools is reassuring.
“They’re really hitting the nail on the head with this,” Conlon said.
