School District Focusing This Week On Internet Safety

It's estimated 5 per cent of students need intensive intervention to improve their behaviour at school. 

The Anglophone South School District has been spending the week concentrating on internet safety and being respectful on social media. Superintendent Zoe Watson tells CHSJ News the message doesn't necessarily gets through to everyone and sometimes police have to be called.

A member of the District Education Council from Charlotte County, Wayne Spires says children have to be taken seriously when they complain about inappropriate behaviour. He maintains that wasn't the case with former Common Councillor and youth minister Donnie Snook which is why he wasn't caught sooner.

Brochures on internet safety were given to parents and they were urged to go to the school district's website to see a video on what they can do to ensure their children are safe while on the internet.
