False-false. students have a limited expectation of privacy on the districts internet system and routine maintenance and monitoring should be expected. an individual search of computer and internet use records can be conducted if there is a reasonable suspicion that the student has violated district policy, including policies against bullying. in addition, schools can place education-based restrictions on student speech that appears to be sponsored by the school or that is necessary to maintain an appropriate school climate. although no current case law exists, the standard probably applies to student speech through the district internet system or via cell phones used at school (nancy willard, an educators guide to cyberbullying and cyber threats eugene: center for safe and responsible internet use, 2005), www.cyberbully.org/docs/cbceducator.pdf).
