California students may need to take an online safety class in school. The Cyber Secure Youth Act would require school districts to teach students in grades K-6 and 7-12 “cyber hygiene.” That’s the term used to cover: online account maintenance, secure website recognition, source evaluation, content maintenance, safe online behavior, computer literacy, and community responsibility.  Students would need to be offered the class at least once during kindergarten through 6th grade and again during 7th through 12th grades. The goal would be to not only teach students how to protect themselves online, but also how to develop a healthy attitude about social media, communicating online, and storing personal information on various sites.
