Legislation approved by the 2006 General Assembly and signed by Governor Kaine requires school divisions to amend their acceptable Internet use policies to include a component on Internet safety for students. This Internet safety component must be integrated within a division's instructional program.
The Superintendent of Public Instruction has issued guidelines to school divisions regarding instructional programs related to Internet safety.
This booklet contains a Description of Law, pages describing what various stakeholder groups should know regarding Internet Safety, and lists many Related Resources on Internet Safety.
