Cybersafety is the safe and responsible use of the Internet and all information and communication technology devices, including mobile phones, digital cameras, and webcams

Assembly Bill 307 and S 1492

Today’s students will be the first generation to use the Internet for their entire lives. This unprecedented access to resources will enhance their learning, research, communications, explorations for new ideas, and expressions of creativity. Unfortunately, this remarkable resource has become susceptible to abuse that often targets young people.
To address this concern, Assembly Bill 307 and S 1492 now require that all California students and teachers receive instruction in Internet Safety and ethical use of information. GESD as part of our internet safety policy is educating minors about appropriate online behavior, including interacting with other individuals on social networking websites and in chat rooms and cyberbullying awareness and response.  GESD has developed this web site with valuable resources matched with specific curriculum and training to protect children in the 21st Century. Through this program, GESD is educating our community to become cyber safe and informed citizens. Cyber safe users are careful, digitally connected consumers. This web site provides information about cyber safety, its importance and resources for students, teachers and parents.
