“Check Before You Click”
Today’s students will be the first generation to use the Internet for their entire lives. This unprecedented access to resources will enhance learning, research, communications, exploration of new ideas and expressions of creativity. Unfortunately, this remarkable resource has become susceptible to abuse that often targets young people.
Arlington Public Schools is committed to helping students stay safe online. The resources presented here are intended to compliment information and instruction provided to students at school and to extend available resources for use by parents and the community.
