Internet Safety - Information

  • State law, Public Act 095-0869, requires that we provide grades 3rd through 8th with internet safety instruction. Below we have provided resources/instruction about internet safety from outside organizations and other resources provided by Illinois State Board of Education.

    The recommended internet safety topics includes:

    1. Safe and responsible use of social networking websites, chat rooms, electronic mail, bulletin boards, instant messaging, and other means of communication on the Internet.
    2. Recognizing, avoiding, and reporting online solicitations of students, their classmates, and their friends by sexual predators.
    3. Risks of transmitting personal information on the Internet.
    4. Recognizing and avoiding unsolicited or deceptive communications received online.
