because what you do now, matters later
The digital age means everyone has a cellphone & social media account- Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, etc. Sending, posting and sharing nude pictures & sexually explicit content have become a problematic issue for schools and parents. These acts contribute to violations of Louisiana's sexting, cyberbullying and sometimes other sexual abuse laws. In an over-sexualized society that contains a billion dollar pornographic industry, people have become desensitized to the issue of sexual violence. This contributes to the general acceptance of sexual violence and criminal activity online. A person often doesn’t realize until it's too late that their negative actions today can have very serious consequences later.
Louisiana Legislative Act 641: Provides that each public school governing authority, in consultation with local law enforcement agencies, develop and distribute age & grade appropriate information to each student regarding Internet and cell phone safety as well as online content that is a potential threat to school safety, including how to recognize and report potential threats to school safety that are posted on the Internet.
