The Megan Pledge
I invite you all to take the Megan Pledge and check out the STOP cyberbullying website.
➢ I agree to take a stand against cyberbullying, including sharing this pledge with others and asking them to take it, too.
➢ I agree not to use technology as a weapon to hurt others.
➢ I agree to “Think Before I Click.”
➢ I agree to think about the person on the other side.
➢ I agree to support others being cyberbullied and report cyberbullying whenever I find it.
➢ I agree not to join in cyberbullying tactics or be used by cyberbullies to hurt others.
➢ I agree to “Stop, Block, and Tell” when I am being targeted by a cyberbully and to “Take 5!” to help me calm down and walk away from the computer.
➢ I agree to be part of the solution, not part of the problem.
Oh, and here's the latest on Alex Barton: Wendy Portillo's side of the story. No surprise, she didn't see anything wrong with what she did, or in taking a vote of student to toss Alex from the class (even just for the day). I recommend reading the article, we need all sides of the story we can get!
