OAK HARBOR, WA - A school district in Washington state wants to clamp down on cyber bullying and sexting. But the district could be running right into a constitutional controversy.
Oak Harbor school district wants to be able to search a student's electronic items like cell phones.
This crackdown could have school administrators looking through anything on the student's phone, like pictures, text messages and videos. School officials view this as a protective measure, but some parents call it an outright invasion of privacy.
The first reading of the proposal passed the school board unanimously. A final approval could happen by the end of the month.
