i-SAFE is Changing to Better Serve You!

Our mission will not change i-SAFE remains steadfastly dedicated to providing educators world class e-Safety curriculum that empowers students to be safe and responsible online. After a decade of successfully educating nearly 10 million K-12 students in the United States and worldwide, i-SAFE is renovating the way curriculum is packaged and distributed. The new subscription and license membership model will make schools, school districts, regional/state education agencies, and even foreign governments member-partners with i-SAFE. Membership through subscription and license enables them to define and distribute to their faculties and staffs the selection of e-Safety curriculum they want taught in their classrooms.

Today, i-SAFE is being asked to service schools and districts in areas where new laws are mandating specific Internet safety instruction in classrooms, as well as supplying the Internet safety education resources and materials that satisfy federal Broadband Act requirements for schools and districts applying for E-Rate reimbursements. Therefore, to continue to adequately serve the various needs of our clients and provide these e-Safety assets to schools, the solution is subscription and license membership at either the Gold, Silver, or E-Rate Compliance levels.

E-Rate Compliance Package

The Protecting Children in the 21st Century Act of 2008 mandates that schools teach students about appropriate online behavior, including interacting with other individuals on social networking websites and in chat rooms and cyber bullying awareness and response.
