i-Safe is being implemented for grade 5 -7 at Browns River Middle
School this semester. The health teacher is presenting it in her
Mt. Mansfield Union High School is piloting it with five classes this
year. Possilble long-term plan would be to have it taught in 9th grade
health classes, except for intellectual property class. which might be
taught in English or library. The classroom teachers, who have been
trained, are presenting the classes.
The classes for grades 5 -12 take about 40 minutes each. There are
five core classes and a few optional classes.
Jericho Elementary School will use it with their 3rd and 4th graders
The classes for grades K - 4 take about 20 minutes each. There are
five core classes.
We have done no formal notification to parents. It is being integrated
into the curriculum.
Overall, the classes are easy to present. The teacher just has to be
able to have small groups of students engage in brief discussions, then
report out to the rest of the class.
We ran an i-Safe Parent night a Browns River Middle School. Our school
resource officer did the presentation. Presentation and discussion
lasted about one hour. Hope to repeat it at the high school and Camels
Hump Middle School this semester. It went well.
We hope to offer an Internet 101 class for parents in the evenings.
Taught by a student, it would focus on how chat rooms and instant
messaging work, and on how to view browser history. This course is not
part of i-Safe. It is just something we hope to grow locally.
