Virginia public schools provide age-appropriate instruction in Internet safety and all of the commonwealth's school divisions are required to develop acceptable Internet use policies. The Virginia Department of Education assists by developing guidelines for instructional programs related to Internet safety and by providing technical assistance to school divisions in the development of policies to protect children from cyber bullying, online abuse and other dangers. See Acceptable Use Policies.
