What discipline can school administrators impose on adolescents who use communication technologies to harass or embarrass other students?

Mobile phones and the internet provide easy access to social media applications that some adolescents are using to communicate inappropriate, and in some locales, illegal messages intended to bully, embarrass, or threaten others.

Both “cyberbullying” and “sexting” have become increasingly problematic for public school administrators who must balance their mandate to provide a safe learning environment free from harassing behavior/language with constitutional rights. Their ability to exert their disciplinary authority is made more difficult by legislation and court judgments that have not kept up with technology advances.
