February – General PTSA Member Meeting
Guest Speaker: Cecelia Gregson,

Strategic Advisor for the
 Washington State Internet Crimes Against Children Taskforce
It would probably surprise you to learn that Washington State ranked 1st per capita in the nation in 2016 for the number of unique internet protocol addresses sharing child exploitation material online.  The images collected and traded often come from children that offenders meet and groom online, including a slew of apps we all know and should be intelligently monitoring our children use (Kik, ChatSnap, ChatStep, Tumblr, Instagram etc.). Cecelia’s duties include community outreach and education.  She travels the state of Washington to engage parents in discussions on the internet, how our children are using it and the unintended consequences of their actions.  She also guides parents in the things to think about when utilizing social media apps and offers options to consider when allowing children access to the internet.
