Combating Cyberbullying & Keeping Kids Safe Online

Combating Cyberbullying and Keeping Kids Safe Online
Posted on 09/26/2018

During the week of October 15th-19th, Avon Grove Charter School will be participating in National Digital Citizenship week.  This will be AGCS’ second year implementing Common Sense Education Digital Citizenship curriculum in grades K-12. This year (particularly in grades 4-12), we will be compacting the focused lessons and activities within National Digital Citizenship Week.


Along with the lessons and activities planned for our students during the week, AGCS will be hosting a parent education session on Combating Cyber-bullying and Keeping Kids Safe Online led by the PA State Police and State Trp. Kelly Macintyre.


Within our culture, student access to technology and mobile devices has become a norm. As parents, you need the tools to be able to educate your children on the proper use of those devices and how to protect your children against cyber-bullying and other online threats.  Raising and educating young people in today’s 24/7 digital media environment is one of the most exciting and overwhelming challenges that parents and schools currently face. Working together we can raise a generation of kids to become smart, responsible, and respectful digital citizens.


We are inviting all of our AGCS parents out to learn from Trp. Macintyre about cyber-bullying and ways that parents can better support safe online practices for their children.
