Draw the Line initiative was established by P.A.V.E.
to address the ever-growing epidemic of cyber bullying.
As the use of technology continues to skyrocket,
children have access to a variety of means to cause harm
to others in the form of emails, texting and posting
rumors and hurtful and damaging comments about others on
social networking sites, such as Facebook, MySpace and
An in-School program for children in
grades three through twelve addresses issues of cyber
bullying utilizing a curriculum called “The Wild Wild
Web” (grades 3 through 6) which defines what cyber
bullying is; establishes a 3-rule code of conduct for
the web; exposes the critical role of the bystander in
common bullying scenarios; and offers simple tips for
documenting cyber bullying attacks.
For grades 7 through 12, “The Dark Side
of Technology” looks at cyber bullying and the pitfalls
of social networking and “sexting”. The curriculum
utilizes a power point presentation, video clips and
role playing activities. All students receive a
“Report it, don’t support it! Stop
Cyberbullying” bookmark that includes 9 effective ways
to deal with cyber bullying.
