  4. Virginia Beach City Public SchoolsInternet Safety Plan Background House Bill 58 • Requires that each school division must develop and incorporate an Internet safety policy into its existing Acceptable Use Policy (AUP). • Each division must “include a component on Internet safety for students that is integrated in a division’s instructional program” (Guidelines and Resources for Internet Safety in Schools, October 2006, p. 20). • This Bill resulted in Chapter 52, an Act to amend and reenact the Code of Virginia §22.1-70.2, which requires each school division, public and private, to file an updated AUP to DOE biennially, and the next AUP must include an Internet safety component.
