In May 2007 though January 2008 fourteen Monroe County school districts in New York State participated in a major research study undertaken by the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT). A major portion of the study was an online survey. It was designed to:

  • Measure the nature and extent of online victimization and offending experiences of K-12th grade students
  • Determine types and levels of supervision and role modeling employed by parents pertaining to the use of computers and portable electronic devices by their children; and
  • Obtain information from teachers about their perceptions of school-related cyber abuse and crime, along with the potential need and challenges associated with implementing cyber safety and ethics instruction.
