Educating our community, to include our students and parents, in cyber safety and proper use of electronic communication devices is the objective and mission of the Focus On Cyber Use and Safety or “F.O.C.U.S.” Initiative. St. Mary’s County Public Schools (SMCPS) has joined with the Office of the Attorney General of Maryland and many community partners in an effort to specifically address this issue through enhanced education and awareness of our students. Working together we can help to ensure that the children of St. Mary’s County enter the cyber world properly, safely, and fully equipped to avoid the risk and dangers associated with this incredible vast resource they call cyberspace.
