PORT ANGELES — Clallam County is teaming up with the Port Angeles School District to provide Internet and social media safety training to students and their parents.

County commissioners Tuesday unanimously approved a $1,695 interagency agreement with the district for six hours of training in December and January.

Clallam County Health and Human Services will pay the school district to coordinate two hours of training for middle and high school students and community members, the agreement says.

“This was a request that came from Chuck Lisk, Stevens Middle School principal, to bring social media and Internet safety to both middle school, high school and adults in the community,” Clallam County Prevention Specialist Leeann Grasseth told commissioners in a Monday work session.

The training will cover suicide prevention, bullying and drug and alcohol use, she said.

“Youth can learn how to be safe,” Grasseth said.

“Parents can learn about what to look for to keep their kids safe.”

The Internet and social media safety training aligns with the strategic plan of the Port Angeles Healthy Youth Coalition, Grasseth said.

“We voted on this as a coalition and reviewed the information,” she added.
