Message from the Superintendent
Ocean Springs School District is continually committed to developing an atmosphere of trust among parents and the community in our ability to provide not only a positive and enriching educational experience but a safe place for students to thrive.
That is why we have partnered with Family Zone, a leading provider of cyber safety products and education, to ensure your kids are cyber safe while at school. Ocean Springs School District is already using Family Zone to block inappropriate content and to identify red flag search terms from students.
As a parent or caregiver of our school district, you receive free access to the Family Zone Cyber Safety Hub, which includes articles, videos, courses, and more. Click “sign up” on the right to get ongoing materials and education from the platform we trust to manage cyber safety across our entire district.

Feedback from parents
Family Zone came to our school and I have to say the information and tools they have to impart is invaluable. Thank you for your service and information you make available. This is a never ending maze for parents and it's nice to have credible information.
ySafe’s education session was the most useful and interesting presentation I have attended on anything, anywhere, and provided the most sensible, practical and realistic advice that I have seen presented about any other topic. Your message is vitally important for all families.

The digital education curriculum was extremely effective, easy to implement and the students and staff found it extremely innovative. We loved how ySafe used language that kids related to in the lessons, as well as creative ways to teach subjects where kids feel they "know it all." It has had real impact for our students, and staff found it particularly easy to use as they accessed it all via the ySafe partner schools platform online.

Jordan presented the workshop in a 'parent friendly' format covering many hot topics related to cyber safety information. It was fantastic to get extra insight into the topic by Jordan using her psychology background. The tips for how to set boundaries with your children was most helpful. It was also a bonus that Jordan was younger as she is very much 'in touch' with all of this due to her age and her profession. Well done an informative, well presented workshop.
