AT&T has introduced online safety education measures developed by the Internet Keep Safe Coalition (iKeepSafe) and presented by Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) officers. Through the storybook adventures of iKeepSafe's Internet safety character, Faux Paw the Techno Cat, elementary students in grades one to five will learn about online safety, with emphasis on cyber-bullying awareness for fifth graders. D.A.R.E. officers will visit classrooms and present animated movies and books to students, then engage in educational exercises. AT&T will later join D.A.R.E. officers at community forums, where local residents and parents can learn about online safety and how they can keep their families safe online. Approximately 4,500 D.A.R.E officers will be trained to present the programme in cities over the course of the 2008-2009 school year.
