DOVER, Del. (AP)- Delaware education officials are putting the final touches on regulations aimed at prohibiting cyberbullying.

The regulations were first proposed in October. Officials are now accepting written comments through Feb. 5 on revisions regarding the definition of cyberbullying that were made in response to earlier comments.

The regulations define cyberbullying as electronic communication directed at an identifiable student or group of students that interferes with a student's physical well-being, is threatening or intimidating, or is likely to limit a student's ability to participate in or benefit from educational programs.

Communications will be considered directed at an identifiable student or group if posted in a medium likely to be available to a broad audience within the school community, regardless of privacy settings. That includes postings on Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, YouTube, and Pinterest.
