Laws Pertaining to Sexting in the State of Vermont

Minors engaging in sexting will be adjudicated delinquent and may be referred to the juvenile diversion program for the first offense. For subsequent offenses, they may be prosecuted for sexual exploitation of children, but do not have to be a part of the sex offender registry. All records will be expunged on the minor turning eighteen. It is not a violation if the person that received the text deleted the image. (§ 2802b)


Advice for Young People

Think about the consequences of taking, sending, or forwarding a sexual picture of yourself or someone else underage. You could get kicked off of sports teams, face humiliation, lose educational opportunities, and even get in trouble with the law.

Never take images of yourself that you wouldn’t want everyone—your classmates, your teachers, your family, or your employers—to see.

Before hitting send, remember that you cannot control where this image may travel. What you send to a boyfriend or girlfriend easily could end up with their friends, and their friends, and their friends.

If you forward a sexual picture of someone underage, you are as responsible for this image as the original sender. You could face child pornography charges, go to jail, and have to register as a sex offender.

Report any nude pictures you receive on your electronic device/cell phone to an adult you trust. Do not delete the message. Instead, get your parents or guardians, teachers, and school counselors involved immediately.

It is the policy of the Board to use electronic resources including the Internet to support and enrich the curriculum. The Board believes in the benefit to students from access to electronic information resources and opportunities for collaboration.

General Information
The Board supports access to rich information resources by students and staff as well as the development of staff instructional skills to analyze, evaluate and incorporate electronic resources within the curriculum. This policy complies with the statutory requirements of the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) and promotes the safe, ethical, responsible, and legal use of District electronic resources including the Internet to support the effective use of these resources for educational purposes. CIPA requires the installation and use of filtering software or services on all computers with access to the Internet to prevent access to visual depictions of obscenity, child pornography or other materials harmful to minors.

Access to District electronic resources including the Internet will be available to students and staff who agree to act in a considerate and responsible manner and abide by the requirements of this policy.

Violation of this policy and the procedures developed in accordance with this policy may result in disciplinary action or referral to local, state or federal law enforcement officials.

Administrative Responsibilities For Safe Use
The Superintendent or designee will coordinate and oversee the use of District electronic resources including the Internet. The Principal or designee will serve as the building-level coordinator for use of the electronic resources including the Internet and will develop building-level procedures necessary to implement this policy. The procedures will include provision for educators to receive proper training, guidelines for the supervision of students using the system, monitoring the use of the system, and overseeing management of the “acceptable use procedures” agreement process.

The District will stipulate in any agreement or contract that Internet service providers will not collect, analyze, and/or sell individual or anonymous student use data for the purpose of commercial advertising and marketing research activities. The collection and analysis of student use data strictly for the purpose of educational evaluation is acceptable, provided that student confidentiality standards are maintained.

The Principal or designee will conduct an annual analysis of the effectiveness of the selected filtering product or service and make recommendations to the Superintendent and Board regarding current and future use of the product or service.

Staff Responsibilities
School staff members are responsible for assuring that students are instructed and supervised in a manner that is appropriate to the age of the students and circumstances regarding the safe, ethical, legal, and responsible use of electronic resources including the Internet. The Principal or designee will develop and disseminate staff supervision guidelines for their respective schools.

Student electronic records are confidential and should be treated like all other student records.



User Responsibilities
During school hours, users may access electronic resources including the Internet for educational purposes. The term "educational purpose" includes use of the system for classroom activities, which may involve e-mail communication, career development, and curriculum driven research. Users are permitted access for limited personal use as long as there is no tangible cost of burden to the system or restriction to educational purposes.

The District may provide e-mail access for students and staff. Students and staff will not use real-time electronic communication, such as chat or instant messaging, for non-instructional purposes.

Students will not post personal contact information about themselves or other people and agree to follow communication safety requirements outlined in administrative procedures when using electronic communications including the Internet.

Parental Notification and Responsibility 
Each school will provide written annual notice to parents/guardians about student use of District electronic resources including the Internet, the policies and procedures governing their use, and the limitation of liability of the District. Parents/guardians may sign an agreement to allow or disallow their child(ren) to access District electronic resources including the Internet and return this agreement to the school before access will be granted.
