Under a new law, Charlotte-Mecklenburg, N.C., students who engage in cyberbullying against school employees can be charged with misdemeanors. However, police say that no reported incidents have risen to that level. Some recent incidents included a student who posted unkind remarks about a teacher, along with a photo, but that was handled internally by the school. In other cases, students have created parody-Twitter accounts for staff, but that action does not fall under the law, police said.
