Supplementary notes

* Indicates laws that actually include the terms “cyberbullying” or “cyber-bullying.” This is compared to states that simply refer to electronic harassment or bullying using electronic means.
** Federal case law allows schools to discipline students for off-campus behavior that results in a substantial disruption of the learning environment at school. These states have simply codified that standard in state statute.
