school header

The Franklin Special School District is partnering with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), to present Project I-Guardian in a series of student (grades 6-8) and parent awareness sessions.

These sessions will be presented by HSI Special Agent/Group Supervisor Dennis Fetting and Special Agent Andy Hendrix, who will explain the risks of online activity while also arming attendees with knowledge and resources. By partnering with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, NetSmartz and the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force, the HSI Project I-Guardian program is a powerful tool to help children and parents understand the risks they will encounter while exploring the digital world.
