But there are a host of other less well-known services and websites used by teens that are now under scrutiny. School attorney, Karen Haase, will review the social media applications that they see students using in Nebraska currently and will explore the legal issues that arise connected with each of these platforms. Cyberbullying, digital citizenship will also be discussed. CLICK HERE to download a printable flyer.
