Internet Safety


Effective beginning with the 2009-2010 school year, the state of Illinois enacted Public Act 095-0869, otherwise known as the Internet Safety Act.  This law requires that all students, grades 3 through 12, attending an Illinois public school will be given instruction in specific areas regarding technology/Internet safety.

Each school district's Board of Education decides the depth and breadth of student awareness in the subject of Internet safety.  In essence, all students in the above-stated grades will be required to complete the school-sanctioned education lesson plan for the purpose of being better prepared to protect themselves from the hidden dangers lurking on the computer, whether that be with software, technology or Internet usage.
