Expert talks on cyber-bullying

The Bainbridge Island School District is inviting students, parents and community members to hear from a national expert on cyber-bullying prevention and internet safety at a special talk later this month at Woodward Middle School.

The event is at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 22 and features Katie Greer, a former intelligence analyst with the Massachusetts State Police. Greer is also the former director of internet safety in the Massachusetts Attorney Generals’ Office, and an advisory board member of the Internet Keep Safe Coalition. She has been featured on CNN and in The Huffington Post, Vanity Fair and USA Today.

Greer’s key to staying safe in this technology-driven world is education; knowledge that both students and adults need to have and understand.

During her visit to Bainbridge, Greer will also talk to sixth- through 12th-grade students at assemblies throughout the day on Tuesday, April 22. Students will discuss what personal information is, who can see personal information, interactive gaming rules and thoughts, texting and smartphone usage, cyber-bullying and more.

The talk is sponsored by the Bainbridge Schools Foundation.
