ACLU: Tunkhannock student's cell phone photos private - News - The Times-Tribune
A former Tunkhannock Area High School student is accusing school and Wyoming County law enforcement officials of violating her privacy rights by seizing and searching her cell phone and punishing her for storing nude and semi-nude photos of herself on the device.
The woman, who was a 17-year-old senior at the time, contends in a civil rights suit filed Thursday that the intimate photos were intended to be viewed "only by herself and, perhaps, her longtime boyfriend." She is seeking unspecified damages and the destruction of all electronic and hard copies of the photos.

Good-Bye Bully Machine (Hardcover)
Source: School Library Journal
Kindergarten-Grade 5--This book equates living with bullying to being around a scary machine that is 'loud and powerful, with spinning wheels and whirling blades. It's cold and mean and looks kind of dangerous.' The kid-friendly text explains that bullies are not always bad people and gives possible reasons for their actions. Different types of behavior are explained, including 'mean words,' 'cruel actions,' hurtful teasing, and picking on others in 'quiet or sneaky ways.' The authors provide tips for dealing with negative behaviors and encourage readers to take a stand against bullying and unplug the bully machine. Fox's enticing, edgy, collage artwork will draw readers in. Small photos of children interacting in social situations blend with cut-out words, machine parts and gears, and other images to send a strong visual message. 'Bully-Busting Activities' are appended.

Sexting 101 | Yoursphere for Parents
Under the umbrella of cyberbullying is another form of technological misuse, sexting—an ability that anyone, who owns a cell phone with a camera, can engage in if they choose.
The term “sexting” is wordplay on exactly what it entails, sending sexual images via text-messaging services from one person to another. The viral affect that sexting can so easily create poses a lot of concerns which are similar to the defamation that any instance of cyberbullying can have on one’s self-esteem or reputation. And just like cyberbullying, sexting is becoming more and more of a problem that parents, teachers, and even lawmakers are having a hard time remedying.In this blog I want to lay out the important facts about sexting, as well as provide some advice so that parents know how to spot it and deal with it, or how to prevent it from happening altogether.
