Social Media and Student Discipline in Public Schools. If there is a boundary, count on high school students to test it. And with the advent of social media, now the entire world–not to mention their school administrators and the rest of their student body–can watch them do it. Best Beginner Guitar Book For Adults. Hundreds, probably thousands, of public middle and high school students have been disciplined for material they posted online. Some of them have filed lawsuits in response, resulting in a rapidly growing body of case law defining the boundaries between students’ free speech and legitimate disciplinary action in a socially networked world. After a few years of student social media cases, courts are still all over the map.

There are no bright- line rules for determining when schools can and can’t punish a student for statements made online. A review of the most notable reported cases, however, does shed some light on what the issues are and what factors the courts find most important in reaching their decisions.

Bold Statements, Bad Words, and Bong Hits. First, a quick background on students’ free speech. The leading case on this subject remains.

Tinker v. Des Moines Ind. Cmty. School District. In that 1. 96. 9 decision, the U. S. Supreme Court held that the First Amendment protected the right of students to wear black armbands to school to protest the Vietnam War. This case established the precedent that “students [do not] shed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech or expression at the schoolhouse gate.”At the same time, however, Tinker also made clear that students do not enjoy the same breadth of free speech rights that adults do–at least, not when that speech could “materially and substantially disrupt the work and discipline of the [public] school.”  So, for example, subsequent Supreme Court decisions have upheld the right of schools to punish a student for making graphic sexual references during a commencement speech, to censor an article on teen pregnancy from a school newspaper, and to remove a student banner reading “BONG HITS 4 JESUS” from a school event.

Lower federal and state courts have filled in the gaps between these precedents even further. Blurring the Boundaries of Schools’ Jurisdiction.

But one of the things that make social media cases so vexing is trying to figure out where the behavior occurs. If a student writes about her school or people in it, but posts it while outside the school building, did she do it in her role as a student or merely as a kid? Put another way, does it fall within the school’s jurisdiction, or is it something only her parents can address? It didn’t used to be hard to figure out whether something happened in or out of school.

You just looked to see which side of the “schoolhouse gate” you were on. Not that physical boundaries were ever the only determining factor; the 2. BONG HITS 4 JESUS” case allowed the school to remove the sign even though the student was standing across the street from school property. But whether a student posting to Facebook is standing inside or outside the school when she does it hardly makes a difference to what impact the post will have. In most cases, the statements are posted after school hours–but the posts remain accessible thereafter, including while at school, and could easily influence student behavior during class. At the same time, as one federal court recently put it, “[i]t would be an unseemly and dangerous precedent to allow the state, in the guise of school authorities, to reach into a child’s home and control his/her actions there to the same extent that it can control that child when he/she participates in school sponsored activities.”Hence the courts’ dilemma.

Free Speech on Facebook. Several of the reported decisions involving public schools have reversed the disciplinary actions taken against students, on the grounds that the student’s online posts were speech protected by the First Amendment. The highest- profile cases on this topic to date are Layshock v. Hermitage School District and J. S. v. Blue Mountain School District. These cases arose out of separate Pennsylvania school districts, and were both decided on June 1. U. S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.

In Layshock, the court overturned the suspension and other discipline imposed on a high school senior who created several fake profiles for his principal on My. Space, all of which contained crude, “unflattering” content. Although the student showed the profiles to a few other students while in school, he created them at home. Most importantly, the school district could not show that the profiles disrupted the school environment in any meaningful way, and the court “reject[ed] out of hand any suggestion that schools can police students’ out- of- school speech by patrolling the public discourse.”The student plaintiff in JS, a middle schooler, was also suspended for creating a fake My. Space profile with “sexually explicit content” for her principal.
