  • What is Student Online Safety? 

    It’s not just protecting your kids while they’re on social media, even though that’s most definitely included. Student Online Safety also includes watching for signs of human trafficking and sextortion. It includes resources to make sure your child is protected from pornography and people trying to contact them while gaming. It also includes cyberbullying and how prevent your child from being cyberbullied and becoming a cyberbully.
