Internet Safety

Teaching Internet Safety Is The LAW!

Beginning with the 2009-2010 school year, the Illinois State Board of Education and the Illinois General Assembly have mandated that all public schools set aside instructional time each year (Grades 3-12) to teach students how to use the Internet safely. The resources linked at the top of this page can be used by teachers to satisfy this state requirement. District #205 teachers are not limited to using only these resources;others may be substituted to fit your curriculum.  The selection of content used is left to the classroom teacher(s).   

For more information about this requirement, please visit the Illinois State Board of Education's Internet Safety Curriculum page.
