Gov. Jack Markell, D-Del, on Friday signed House Bill 268 and Senate Bill 193. House Bill 268 requires all schools reporting bullying incidents, substantiated or not, to the Department of Education. The question is how would this work technically?
How can a school comprehensively collect these incidents in one online place, have evidence to go along with each one, and then report to Department of Education?
There has to be some kind of a system that simplifies this process and doesn’t require schools spending millions of dollars, especially when the budgets are small and money is hard to come by in most schools.
Here is how CanProve can help.
- Tracking. Since it an online app, schools can immediately start tracking cyberbullying incidents, without having to install anything and spend IT time and resources.
- Proof. Not only CanProve provides a tracking mechanism, but it also attaches proof in a form of an online web page snapshot that can’t be modified.
- Reporting. Finally, schools that use CanProve can instantly report cyber bullying incidents (along with proof) to Department of Education with a single click!
“One million kids, it’s estimated, are cyberbullied every year, 160,000 kids a year don’t go to school because they’re being bullied online or in bricks and mortar context and 1 out of 3 middle school students or high school students report being bullied. We need to do something about it and this bill helps us do that, but do it in a Constitutional fashion.” Attorney General Beau Biden.
