Research has documented that large percentages of students ages 12-17 routinely go online. With the surge in the use of the internet for a variety of purposes and reasons, it is vitally important that we educate our students on the safe practices regarding internet use.
During their time in the Hickman County School System, students will be taught Internet Safety through their coursework in all grade levels. In addition, we want to provide some information on our website for parents, students, and community members about this important topic.
