Cyberbullying is a new age problem. Roanoke County Schools is using a new age solution to try and fix it.
With the help of concerned students and teachers the school leades say they are monitoring Facebook pages and twitter handles that involve the schools. Two or three times, administrators have written emails to twitter and Facebook to shut down pages that promote speaking poorly of other students.
"We really try to get on it because students don't feel good about themselves if they're being talked about on social media and everyone's retweeting or liking," said Hayley Poland, a counselor with Roanoke County Schools.
School leaders say the multi-billion dollar companies are both responsive when they're asked to take pages down.
