Roseville School Wins FBI Safe Online Surfing Challenge Award
St. Albans Country Day School Receives November 2021 Award
Today, Special Agent in Charge Sean Ragan of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Sacramento Field Office presented St. Alban’s Country Day School in Roseville, Calif., with the November 2021 FBI Safe Online Surfing (FBI-SOS) Challenge Award for the “Starfish” category, a category for school sites with 5-50 participants in the program. Seventeen eighth grade students in Kristin Sordi’s computer and technology class successfully completed the Safe Online Surfing Quiz with a combined score of 94.1%.
“We are so proud of the class, especially since they are our first national award winner in our region” said Special Agent in Charge Ragan. “We hope the material and their demonstrated understanding of it enables them to more safety navigate the online environments that are ubiquitous in the lives of children in our community.”
The FBI-SOS is a free, online, educational program for children in third through eighth grade. FBI-SOS teaches cyber safety in a fun and educational way, helping children become better digital citizens. Each module contains material that meets state and federal curricula requirements that covers topics like cyberbullying, passwords, malware, social media, and more.
The FBI-SOS materials are free, online, and available to anyone at any time. Families don’t need to register to access the materials—just visit sos.fbi.gov and choose the appropriate grade level.
Any United States public, private, or home school that has at least five students can register for the FBI-SOS Challenge. To enter the national competition and participate in testing, teachers register an eligible class and administer the online test. Teachers manage all aspects of student participation in the FBI-SOS Challenge—the FBI does not collect or store any student information. Once registered, teachers create classes and a test key for each student and track student performance.
