Cell-Safe KidsCell-Safe Kids is a multi-partner collaborative effort to reduce cell phone/Internet victimization of 4th–6thgrade students in five school districts in Monroe County, New York. This intervention strategy design was based on Rochester Institute of Technology research and analysis of student cell phone abuse that will be used to create educational objectives by media experts from Harvard’s Center on Media and Child Health (CMCH). CMCH and iKeepSafe will then produce educational curricula for cell phone abuse intervention to be delivered back to the students via Woogi World with pre/post testing to measure effectiveness. Five school districts will participate in this innovative project and the associated teachers will receive professional development in cell phone/Internet safety and online/virtual education. Parent training and community outreach are incorporated into the project, as well as Strategic Planning for project distribution to other communities.iKeepSafe will work with Contemporary Productions, LLC (Q2, 2010) to develop the strategic launch and distribution model for the national roll out of Cell-Safe Kids.

.) The teams will develop the content for their respective stakeholder group, according to the following incident components: Pre-incident: Prepare for an incidentby (1) developing policy, (2) implementing prevention/intervention programs, and (3) establishing specific protocol for incident management. At the time of incident: Identify strategies for how best to respond to the victim, perpetrator, and bystanders of an incident (i.e., fact finding, documentation, and reporting when necessary), Post-incident: Follow-up with the parties involved to determine appropriate actions, track outcomes at two, four, twelve, twenty-four weeks, etc., and put review policies in place to assist schools in determining if they need to expand or revise their prevention strategies. Adjust prevention and intervention efforts to reflect emerging trends and relevant data gathered with the Incident Assessment Tool.
