As required by the FCC, CIPA and E-Rate guidelines any student that uses the internet must receive instruction on internet safety in the areas of cyber bullying, appropriate online behavior and social networking. Schools have until May 9, 2014 to complete the required hours as indicated for the various grade levels in the chart below and submit the documentation to me at the central office.
 
Attached is the completed document. The pacing guide serves as a suggestion. It is not a traditional curriculum, but rather an adaptable resource that can fit into the demanding curricula in today's schools. The activities can be used in any order and can fit almost any time frame, allowing you to customize the integration of the resources to suit your students' needs.
