TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - New cyber security curriculum is in the works for students in kindergarten through high school.

The curriculum is possible with a grant involving the Tippecanoe School Corporation and Purdue University. An update was presented to TSC board members Wednesday afternoon.

Ashley Greeley is helping develop the curriculum.

She said it includes some computer science elements, including networking. It also touches on digital citizenship and online safety.

"Just teaching kids to be more aware of things like public WIFI and sharing your location when you're on social media. These are things that kids really need to think of growing up in this digital world," said Greeley.

Greeley said the program will also help students with job awareness. She said there is a need for the skill set.
