CHEYENNE — Laramie County School District 1 is adding "electronic torture" to its suspension and expulsion policy in order to combat cyber-bullying.

Assistant Superintendent Mike Klopfenstein says school officials can suspend or expel students who use hurtful language on cell phones and computers, but the proposed change is meant to clarify its policy.

The new policy will be available for review until June 7 when the board votes on the matter.

Klopfenstein says there have been incidents of cyber-bullying in the past two years.
