PVUSD Internet Safety Plan
The Internet Safety plan is designed to ensure that our students are following safe online practices. Twice a year schools will organize an assembly or class presentations followed by a discussion or writing assignment regarding appropriate online behavior. Technology Liaisons and school Leadership will determine the appropriate content and process to best serve the needs of the school site.
Assemblies and classroom presentations educate students to avoid dangerous and inappropriate behavior and to make smart decisions while becoming a digital citizen with a focus on the following topics:
1. Recognizing and reporting inappropriate online behavior
2. Cyber Bullying
3. Social Networks
4. Understanding copyright laws
Teachers will use selected videos and lesson plans in an assembly or class discussion to initiate a conversation on the above topics with their students in order to build their understanding on the dangers of the internet. Additionally, teachers should revisit the discussion with followup questions and/or online resources to continue the conversation with their class after the assembly or classroom discussion.
