   Before Generation Safe, we talked about how to address issues of digital citizenship, but we had no
  common framework to drive our decisions, explained Senior Director of Instructional Technology from
  Tamalpais Union High School District, Joel Hames. Now that we have completed the 360 assessment, we
  have been able to develop specific action plans, and to involve a broader group of stakeholders. All of this                                   PRID002099

  continuous and successful partnership moving forward.
