South Lakes Hosting Forum on Teens, Tech and Safety

South Lakes High SchoolSouth Lakes High School is sponsoring a forum with a cyber-security expert that will examine technology and cyberbullying.

The forum, “Keeping Your Kids Safe: Vulnerabilities through Technology and Social Media” will feature local cybercrime specialist Chad Brockway. The session is from Feb. 23 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the SLHS Theatre.

The school is billing the presentation as “how kids are using technology and how technology can be used against your kids. Topics include Bullying, “Sexting”, Social Media, Online Credibility, Blackmail, Crimes against Children, Child Abduction and more.

Parents can learn about new and emerging technologies; how to monitor and what to watch for; how to talk to your kids about safe online behavior and what resources are available to you for support.

This is a timely topic as several SLHS parents told FCPS Superintendent Karen Garza their concerns on the issues during the Superintendents Listening Tour stop in Reston in December.
