10/23/17 – Cyber Safety | 6:30 – 8:30 pm | Porthole Theater

This is an informative presentation that will prepare parents to effectively supervise their students on social media sites and protect them from cyberbullying. The DHHS PTSA is thrilled to welcome Clay Cranford, a long-time law enforcement professional, a nationally recognized expert on social media, and author of “Parenting in a Digital World.”  The presentation will include explanations of current technology and the applications teens are using to access the Internet and social media networks.

Cyberbullying is defined with current trends and real world examples investigated in schools. Participants will be given tools and an action plan that they can immediately begin using to help keep their children safe online.  For more information please download the presentation flyer: Parenting in a Digital World.
