    Monday is the last day you can to apply to be on Montgomery County Public Schools new cybercivility task force.

    Superintendent Joshua Starr created the campaign after getting threatening tweets from parents and students for his recent decisions on snow days. Starr hopes the campaign will open up talks between parents and their children about civility on social media sites like Twitter.

    In December, Starr wrote a letter to parents saying many of the tweets directed towards him and his family were offensive and disturbing. School staff even reported the tweets to the school system's security team.

    So far, 150 people have signed up. If you're interested, you can apply on the school district's website until 5 p.m.
