• Internet Safety

     

    It is the responsibility of all Duplin County School system’s personnel to educate minors about appropriate online behavior (behavior on social networking websites and in chat rooms, and cyberbullying awareness and response) as well as supervise and monitor usage of the online computer network and access to the Internet in accordance with the Internet Safety policy, the Children’s Internet Protection Act, the Neighborhood Children’s Internet Protection Act and the Protecting Children in the 21st Century Act.


    CIPA requirements:

    Schools should provide education about appropriate online behavior (online safety & cyberbullying) to their students who are actually accessing the Internet using E-rate covered services.  Schools are not required to provide education about appropriate online behavior to very young students who are not yet using the Internet in school. To the extent a school is aware that some students have missed the scheduled training, the school should take reasonable steps to provide make-up training or otherwise provide the relevant material to those students.
