S.A.I.L. Academy Covers Keeping Your Kids Safe Online at Home

Landing \ Roxbury News

The fourth and final installment of the Student Academic Intervention and Learning (SAIL) Parent Academy for this year was held at Franklin School on May 18th.

Families were treated to free ice cream sundaes on a hot May day before parents were split off to attend a workshop on keeping kids safe online at home.

Detective Brian Kearns from the NJ State Police showed parents what to be on the lookout for technology and Internet wise to keep their kids safe. The presentation, though geared for the elementary level also covered the middle and high school ages.

Many of the topics Kearns covered, though scary, was to inform parents how easily accessible some things are for children and what to be on the lookout for in case their child had stumbled upon something that could get them in trouble or hurt.

 “My hope is that parents take away from this workshop that they shouldn’t be afraid to have their kids on the Internet as long as they follow guidelines to protect them,” shared Kelly Freund, Franklin and Nixon Technology Teacher and Title I Coordinator.

Freund went on to say, “Technology is all around us. There is really no way of avoiding tech in 2017. If you are proactive, you can feel confident your kids are safe online and enjoy its many benefits.”

Teresa Rehman, Director of Technology for the district echoed those sentiments.

Rehman shared with the parents how the district is teaching children to be safe digital citizens as well as what sites and apps the district is using that can be used at home that we know are safe.

These SAIL Academies were made possible for Franklin and Nixon Schools because they qualified for Title I funding. This funding is based on the number of students enrolled in the free and reduced lunch program.

These academies were designed to make parents feel comfortable and welcome in their child’s school and to provide help for them in the easiest and most convenient ways possible.

“The more parents are involved with their child’s education, the more successful they will be,” explained Freund.
