As specified under Illinois School Code Section 5, “beginning with the 2009-2010 school year, a school district must incorporate into the school curriculum a component on Internet safety to be taught at least once each school year to students in grade 3 and above.” (Public Act 095-0869)
For the past few weeks your third, fourth or fifth grade student has been participating in discussions on Internet Safety including cyber bullying. It is our hope that these discussions will continue at home. Additional materials and support for parents and students can be found at www.netsmartz.org and also on our district website at http://www.naperville203.org/Page/2453
The following tips and discussion ideas are taken from the netsmartz website. Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
