how to protect students
How to protect students
  • Filtering Software – doesn’t allow searches for certain words.
  • Blocking Software – doesn’t allow access for certain websites.
  • Schools can hold an Internet Safety Class in the beginning of school. Offer this after school so parents can attend!
  • Have your students sign contracts to use the computer, explaining the rules in depth, with the consequences.
  • Supervise! When using computers, educators, parents, etc. should have a direct view of the computer.
  • Ask questions. If you see a student acting suspiciously, ask questions and get involved.
create a contract
Create a Contract!
  • I will not give out personal information such as my address, telephone number, parents’ work address/telephone number, or the name and location of my school without my parents’ permission.
  • I will tell my parents right away if I come across any information that makes me feel uncomfortable.
  • I will never agree to get together with someone I "meet" online without first checking with my parents. If my parents agree to the meeting, I will be sure that it is in a public place and bring my mother or father along.
  • I will never send a person my picture or anything else without first checking with my parents.
  • I will not respond to any messages that are mean or in any way make me feel uncomfortable. It is not my fault if I get a message like that. If I do I will tell my parents right away so that they can contact the online service.
  • I will talk with my parents so that we can set up rules for going online. We will decide upon the time of day that I can be online, the length of time I can be online, and appropriate areas for me to visit. I will not access other areas or break these rules without their permission.
