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 for all grade levels. 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 online, 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

After providing a lesson digital citizenship, teachers should revisit the discussion with followup questions and/or online resources to continue the conversation with their class.
