Requires the State Board of Education to provide to each school district educational materials for parents regarding child online safety.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1

Requires the State Board of Education to make available resource materials (instead of requiring the State Board to develop a model curriculum); makes related changes. Requires the State Board to make these resource materials available on its Internet website (instead of requiring the State Board to provide to each school district educational materials for parents regarding child online safety).

House Floor Amendment No. 1
Deletes everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the contents of the bill as engrossed, with the following changes. Removes the provision that provides that it is recommended that the age-appropriate curriculum for Internet safety instruction provide for a minimum of 2 hours of Internet safety education each school year.
