School Cyber Safety Challenge

January 17th, 2008 by flanews

The challenge is on for school principals to make sure their students are safe from online predators.† Attorney General Bill McCollum and Education Commissioner Eric Smith want as many schools to sign up for the attorney generalís CyberSafety presentation, a 50-minute interactive program that shows kids the potential dangers of surfing the internet.

ďWe want them to think about this and get engaged,” the attorney general said.† “What is a friend?† Do you really know the friend?† And we go through a series of demonstrations that interact with video and slides and conversation that show them they really donít know all those people and who could be out there.”

Two challenge winners will be announced in May, one based on number, the other based on percentage of schools signing up.† The winning districts will receive special CyberSafety presentations hosted in person by Attorney General McCollum and Commissioner Smith next fall.
