Students from DCHS have been involved in producing a series of Public Service Announcements alerting young people about Cyber Bullying and Internet Safety through the Net Literacy organization. A Net Literacy Club has been started by students at DCHS this year and the club will serve as the “talent” for the filming of the 7th and 8th grade Internet safety program – which is a 45 minute production. These spots will be shown throughout Indiana on all Comcast and Bright House Network systems and the Government channels starting in March. Net Literacy also has a program for high school students to present to their classmates and their parents (also reviewed by the IDOE) that the DCHS students would like to put on this semester. The mission of the organization is to engage students and show how they can empower themselves and make real change that impacts thousands of other students and their parents. DCHS is helping to spearhead this initiative. Ian Trusedell is heading up the program at DCHS after participating in the Safe Connects program at IUPUI this past summer. Teacher Scott Bauserman is helping to sponsor the club and assisting in extending the program to other schools in the district. DCHS student, Laney Wilson, appears on the PSA attached.
