CASPER — The Natrona County School District has approved an anti-bullying policy that targets using electronic devices to engage in cyberbullying or sending text messages with sexual content, called sexting.

Marty Wood, director of the district’s safe schools office, says the district defines sexting as electronically sending anything of a sexual nature to someone who would find it offensive.

Kathleen Dixon, attorney for the school board, says the policy targets any type of “intentional electronic communication done with the intent to harm, to embarrass, to demean.”

The state Legislature required all school districts to pass an anti-bullying policy by Dec. 31, and the district approved its policy last week.
