This study examines cyberbullying awareness in schools based on the statements of teachers and managers. Survey data were collected from 376 educators in 277 middle and high schools. The 'Questionnaire for Cyberbullying Awareness at School' was used as the data collection tool and data were collected online and analysed with frequency and percentage statistics. The findings show that: schools have wrong or inadequate strategies concerning recognition and intervention of cyberbullying; techniques for cyberbullying prevention is sufficient, concerning the creation of an anti-cyberbullying school culture and taking technological precautions; however, the creation of an anti-cyberbullying curriculum, and the construction of specific anti-cyberbullying policies for schools, is lacking in teachers' cyberbullying awareness. It is clear that cyberbullying awareness in secondary schools and high schools in Turkey must be increased.
