State 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.

The cyberbullying policy will include postings on Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, YouTube, and Pinterest, despite any privacy settings.
