October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month, and the theme of this year’s observance is “our shared responsibility.”
Students and their parents can learn more about their role in that shared responsibility by visiting the cybersafety section of the PowerUp website at http://www.houstonisd.org/cybersafety. There, they will find articles on everything from plagiarism and cyberbullying to sexting and online safety.
HISD will also be hosting a phone bank at Univision on Wednesday, Oct. 1, to answer callers’ questions. The phone bank will be manned by district staff members. Call 1-855-841-4545 between the hours of 5 and 7:30 p.m. that night to participate.
