In the 1990s, many incidents revolved around student-on-student violence, usually involving guns. Schools implemented many programs to keep guns and gangs out of schools. In the 21st Century, school violence is taking on a new and more insidious form. New technologies have made it easier for bullies to gain access to their victims. This form of bullying has become known as cyber-bullying. This article provides a window on this little known world and offers practical suggestions for dealing with this new challenge. When we think about school violence, events like Columbine come to mind. Looking back at the incident, Andy Carvin for The Digital Beat reminds his readers that one of the killers, Eric Harris, had his own web site that contained “conspicuous threats  against fellow students” (Carvin, 2000). It was brought to the attention of the police and led to both Harris and Klebold being questioned about the incident and was an early example of what is now called “cyber bullying.”
