The Brockton Public Schools
Internet Safety Center
Welcome to the BPS Internet Safety Center. We want to assure you that each BPS student's safety and well-being is of prime concern to the BPS.
The district AUP (Acceptable Use Policy) is continually undergoing updates and modifications to meet the challenges of our new cyberspace-based system of communication. In any given moment, our students and staff can be communicating via electronic systems.
With the advances in technology and communication, comes new challenges to the safety of our students. Many of them, young, naive and trusting, are giving out personal information that can and is being used to hurt them. Our young people are becoming victims of cyberstalkers, Internet predators, peer predators and bullying. Bullying has taken on a whole new genre in the cyberspace realm. Cyber Bullying is still bullying. Only with cyberbullying, often times the bully is unknown or is posing as the victim himself. For Cyberbullying resources, we are referring you to MARC - the Massachusetts Aggression Reduction Center at Bridgewater State University. There you will find a plethora of free web resources on Bullying and Cyberbullying. Additional Internet Safety Resources can be found by clicking the link below.
This web site is designed to inform staff of the dangers of the Internet and of Cyberspace and to provide resources for you and your students to safely peruse the information super, super highway.
