INTERNET SAFETY CURRICULUM BACKGROUND
Public Act 095-0869 requires all students in the State of Illinois in grades 3 through 12 be provided instruction about Internet Safety. As a result of this recent legislation, District 186 technology staff developed a grade specific Internet safety curriculum to be implemented beginning 2010. This curriculum addresses seven domains of Internet safety as set forth by the State of Illinois. The curriculum developed by district technology staff is flexible enough to allow schools within the district to choose when and how to teach the lessons, yet consistent enough to ensure all students receive the same knowledge and skills across grade levels. Technology staff will continue to update Internet safety resources, so check back often.
