Learn how to keep your children safe in today's online world.

On Tuesday, January 16, 2018 at 7pm,  Lakewood School District will hold a free presentation titled “Is It Worth the Risk?” to provide information necessary to keep children safe on the internet. The information will be presented by Lexi Giering, the Statewide Outreach Coordinator for the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office and member of the Ohio Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.

Ms. Giering’s presentation will focus on the dangers of popular internet sites and mobile apps.  Specifically with regard to problem areas and potential red flags of today’s connected world. Cyberbullying and sexting and the consequences associated with these dangerous trends will also be discussed. The task force will provide attendees with the tools and knowledge to protect themselves and their children.  Time will be allotted for questions and discussions.

This free event is highly recommended for all parents and guardians of today’s internet connected youth. A student presentation was provided to Lakewood Middle School students this past fall. The messages were so powerful, the district staff added this parent presentation.
