Internet Safety Information and Resources

Internet Safety Act
This is the latest version of the Public Act 095-0869 amendment to the Illinois School Code that addresses the Internet safety education curriculum requirements. Beginning with the 2009-2010 school year it requires Internet safety to be taught at least once each school year to all students in grade 3 or above, with the scope and duration of the unit to be determined by the school board. 

Seven topics identified as needing to be addressed are:

  1. Safe & responsible use of social networking websites, chat rooms, electronic mail, bulletin boards, instant messaging, and other means of communication on the Internet.
  2. Recognizing, avoiding, and reporting online solicitations of students, their classmates, and their friends by sexual predators.
  3. Risks of transmitting personal information on the Internet.
  4. Recognizing and avoiding unsolicited or deceptive communications received online.
  5. Recognizing and reporting online harassment and cyber-bullying.
  6. Reporting illegal activities and communications on the Internet.
  7. Copyright laws on written materials, photographs, music, and video.
