Cybercivility and CyberSafety 

The Internet is a fabulous resource for education, entertainment, and more. But the Internet is not regulated or controlled by any one entity. So parents and schools have a responsibility to educate children about its safe and appropriate use.

It is imperative that parents and students report unsafe incidents to law enforcement so that offenders can be apprehended and prosecuted. 


Cybercivility Forum Set for April 24

The public is invited to attend a Cybercivility Forum on Thursday, April 24, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the auditorium at Richard Montgomery High School, 250 Richard Montgomery Drive in Rockville. The guest speaker will be Andrea Weckerle, author of Civility in the Digital Age and president of CiviliNation, which focuses on building the capacity of individuals to communicate and engage in cyberspace in a responsible and accountable way.  At the forum, there will be a discussion about the various ways members of the MCPS community can participate in the initiative and provide feedback.

For more information and to RSVP for the Cybercivility Forum, visit the Cybercivility webpage.
