In recognition of National Cyber Security Awareness Month, the DeKalb County School District is launching a year-long effort to educate the community on the safe use of social media and the internet.

The #CyberAwareFamily effort will engage students, families, staff and the community both online and in the classroom. Using materials from The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children and other experts, the District will shed light on how misuse of the online behavior can result in serious harm for students and others.

“We recognize the web and social media are fun and efficient ways of networking in our increasingly global world,” said Superintendent R. Stephen Green. “But if our young people aren’t careful about who they are contacting, they could expose themselves to dangers such as human trafficking, identify theft and more. As educators, we will take the lead in proactively helping our students and families avoid those risks.”

The community is encouraged to visit the DCSD website on cyber safety – – for more information that will be updated regularly. Social media users are asked to post or tweet photos of themselves using social media safely with the hashtag #CyberAwareFamily.

Schools and staff will also continue to be educated through the district’s cyber safety educational program.
