In order to promote awareness of the advantages and responsibilities involved in safely using the Internet, the St. Mary Parish School Board has proclaimed October as National Cyber Security Awareness Month and the week of October 16-22, 2016, as Digital Citizenship Week.
The proclamation, submitted by Mr. Kevin Derise, Chief Technology Officer, marks the official release of the district's Digital Citizenship curriculum, which will be delivered to students in Grades K-12. Parents and guardians are invited to preview the entire curriculum at commonsensemedia.org.
As a NCSAM champion, St. Mary Parish will be providing suggestions to parents and community members regarding additional steps that can be taken in homes to promote cyber security through our CyberSAFE blog. The blog can be found at the bottom of every district website.
