Internet Safety for Parents and Guardians

 

The NFCSD has a program which encourages students to use technology properly and which actively protects student safety on the Internet in many ways.


 
The NFCSD has an Internet Safety Curriculum Guide available for teachers which covers many of the elements of safe technology use with our students. However, we encourage our parents and guardians to become active teachers in this area,also. Below are some resources which we think will prove helpful. If you have other suggestions, please let us know.
 
Here is a great site with information and ideas regarding safe use of technology.
