ACLU: Everett school searched student’s Facebook page

The Associated Press

EVERETT – The American Civil Liberties Union has sent a letter to the Everett School District asking for a public apology for a student because a supervisor pressured her to open her Facebook page while investigating a complaint of cyber-bullying that involved other students.

The Everett Herald reports the letter was sent to Superintendent Gary Cohn on Friday for an incident involving student Samantha Negrete.

The letter also asks for North Middle School students to be formally notified that Samantha’s Facebook page was involuntarily and improperly searched; for students to be trained on their rights and responsibilities in using online technology and their rights regarding school searches; and for a new school district policy outlining when school officials may access students’ online accounts.

School district spokeswoman Mary Waggoner says they had not seen a copy of the letter.
