What is Cyber Safety?
Cyber Safety is the safe and responsible
use of the internet and digital technologies. It is important that students are
informed of the issues surrounding the use of communication and information
tools online. Atlanta Public Schools is committed to ensuring that our students
are safe online.
How are we enforcing Cyber Safety in
Atlanta Public Schools?

Sense Media to provide the curriculum to be used for internet safety for our
students and staff. In addition, the department of Instructional Technology
works in conjunction with our Media Services department to deliver engaging
