Now that you’ve purchased Cyber Safeguard’s Cyberbullying Education & Compliance Program, we’d like to walk you through the steps to implement each component. The purpose of these instructions is so that you can maximize the benefits of the Program for your school.
You will receive one customized newsletter each semester formatted to be sent to parents and staff. Each newsletter will include frequently updated information relating to cyberbullying including trends and common methods, app and other social media/technology provider updates, key issues, news stories, and best practices. We provide the newsletter in a webpage format so that you can include it in any email communication platform that you already use. Our goal is to ensure that you can easily incorporate the newsletter into your current process without additional effort on your end.
What needs to be done: Your admin will receive a link to the newsletter webpage and suggested introductory language from Cyber Safeguard. We recommend sending the link via email to parents and faculty as desired.
As part of your annual subscription, you will also receive access to Newswire Alerts. You will receive real-time email alerts tracking federal and state laws, news, and updates regarding cyberbullying and online harassment (all based on your location). These updates are important as they may affect students, parents, and your district/school.
What needs to be done: Your admin’s email address will be added to the CS Newswire subscription at no additional charge. Please add firstname.lastname@example.org to your safe sender list to ensure you receive all emails.
Take Action Guide
Included in your subscription is preferred access to the Take Action Guide. This personalized report outlines critical laws, social media and police contact information, suggested first steps, and more helpful details that may assist someone who needs help with a case of cyberbullying or online harassment. The Take Action Guide can be used by school administrators as they assist parents and students or give access to parents and students who may need immediate advice regarding a case of cyberbullying.
What needs to be done: Your admin will receive a code valid for 10 free Take Action Guide downloads and a discount code for any additional Take Action Guide purchases for the rest of the year. This code can be used by school administration on behalf of a student or distributed to parents who may access their Take Action Guide from home.

The unique Take Action Guide will be emailed to the user.
