West Virginia State Trooper Grose delivered an informative and engaging presentation on online safety to middle and high school parents on Tuesday evening 2/21/2017. The presentation covered the potential dangers of popular apps with teens including “dating” apps, crime statistics, relevant laws, sexting, cyberbullying, and ended with a discussion of apps parents can download to help ensure their children’s safety online.
The talk was held in the SVHS auditorium and was arranged by teachers from the Freshman Academy. Trooper Grose presented to the 9th grade students in the academy earlier this month on 2/9/17. Last year, the presentation was given to all Spring Valley students.
Spring Valley teachers regularly embed cybersafety as part of the curriculum from sites such as Common Sense Media. Freshman Academy teachers focused on online safety during the “suspended curriculum” in the first week of school this year.
Trooper Grose has graciously let us share her resources on the SVHS website. Below you will find a copy of her presentation as well as handouts she brought. There is a wealth of great information located in these two files.
