The 2008-2009Safe Search Awards Index, a top 100 national ranking of school districts has been released. The award recognizes those school districts which keep students safest when searching online.
For the third year in a row, Forsyth County Schools in suburban Atlanta finished first for the large-sized districts, with over 7.3 million safe searches for the 2008-2009 school year. For the mid-sized districts, Tangipahoa Parish School System in Louisiana led with 1,875,328 searches, and Austin Public Schools in Minnesota came in first with 675,485 searches among small-sized districts.
The Safe Search Awards Index was administered by netTrekker, provider of digital K-12 educational resources. netTrekker's team of educators reviews each resource for academic integrity, age appropriateness, and safety.
Each of the top districts will be awarded with the equivalent of a $5,000 prize package, specifically designed to provide a new 21st century learning solution. The prize package includes one day of netTrekker professional development workshops and assorted netTrekker premium items, plus eight seats in the CyberSmart!
