Teachers play a vital role in continually educating students about their use of the Internet (educationally & personally). Teachers should take advantage of classroom opportunities to educate students about the power of the Internet and how to safely utilize the resources available to them. Classroom teachers should collaborate with library specialists to ensure that students can effectively evaluate the validity of the information they find. Teachers should enforce applicable Henrico and school policies as necessary. Additional Internet Safety Resources can be found at:
