School policies regarding student cyberbullying vary widely across Minnesota and there is little state oversight on the issue, according to a Minnesota Public Radio analysis. Roughly 75% of districts rely on a policy drafted by the Minnesota School Boards Association, while other districts offer fewer guidelines and could be in violation of state laws. Many districts are still working to determine schools' role in preventing bullying that happens online and off-campus, while some say parents can play a role by monitoring students' Internet use.
