Cybersecurity Awareness in Schools
Cybersecurity awareness is crucial in our increasingly interconnected world, where technology shapes our daily lives.
The digital landscape is fraught with threats, from sophisticated hacking attempts to deceptive social engineering, endangering individuals, businesses, and nations.
To navigate this digital frontier safely, it is imperative that we collectively strengthen our understanding of cybersecurity risks and adopt proactive measures to mitigate them.

As of June 24, 2022, NCDHHS will be sunsetting the StrongSchools NC Public Health Toolkit. Going forward, school administrators, staff, and families should now refer to the CDC’s Operational Guidance for K12 Schools for information on how to lower risk of COVID-19 in school settings.
In order to provide continuing support for North Carolina’s youngest readers, The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction Office of Early Learning has developed and released “Literacy at Home.” This digital resource provides literacy activities at each grade level, pre-kindergarten through fifth grade. Families and communities may access this resource for activities that specifically target the literacy skills of phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, reading comprehension, and oral language. When children grow in each of these foundational areas they are well on their way to becoming proficient readers.
