Protecting our Students
The Buffalo Public Schools is committed to child safety. Our schools are taking a proactive role by providing the Kidsmartz Curriculum to students. Kidsmartz is a child safety program that empowers students in grades K-5 to practice safer behaviors and educates families about preventing abduction. The following link offers resources to help parents, caregivers and teachers protect their children and reinforces the practice of safer behaviors: https://www.kidsmartz.org
The Buffalo Public Schools is committed to teaching children about on-line safety. Schools will be using the NetSmartz Workshop, an educational program that teaches children ages 5-17 about online safety and digital citizenship.
