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

iKeepSafe congratulates SWGFL for their impressive achievements this past year and looks forward to a
continuous and successful partnership moving forward.
