‡ Reporting standards not met. There are too few cases.
NOTE: "Cyber-bullying" includes students who responded that another student posted hurtful information about the respondent on the Internet; students who responded that another student harassed the respondent via instant messaging; students who responded that another student harassed the respondent via Short Message Service (SMS) text messaging; students who responded that another student harassed the respondent via e-mail; students who responded that another student harassed the respondent while gaming; and students who responded that they were excluded on-line. Cyber-bullying types do not sum to total because students could have experienced more than one type of cyber-bullying.
