i-SAFE Curriculum Effectiveness

i-SAFE America's Internet safety curriculum is designed to provide students with the awareness and knowledge they need in order to recognize and avoid dangerous, destructive, or unlawful online behavior and to respond appropriately. The U.S. Congress has designated i-SAFE to provide our age-appropriate K-12 curriculum to schools in all 50 states; it can also be found in all Department of Defense (DoDEA) schools in 14 foreign countries and the United States.

The i-SAFE Internet safety curriculum is correlated to all of the National Educational Technology Standards for Students (NETS), which have been published by the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE). All i-SAFE lessons and Webcasts are reviewed and approved by the Child Protective Division of the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Program, in the Department of Justice.
