Digital Citizenship


What is your digital footprint?  Do you know how to protect yourself, your identity and your reputation online?  Are you connected to the global community and do you positively contribute online?  Do you respect the rights of others when using digital media?  Are you a good digital citizen?

While every teacher should be reinforcing expectations for appropriate online communications and providing opportunities for students to practice this behavior, specific persons at each level are identified as the persons responsible for providing the formal instruction and documenting this instruction.

  • LMS/Counselors at the elementary level
  • ELA teachers at the MS and HS levels. MS and HS may decide to include other personnel, such as LMS/CTE, as long as lessons are documented.

The district recommends using Common Sense Media’s curriculum (http://www.commonsensemedia.org/educators/curriculum). The recommended lessons are organized by grade level at the right. The curriculum does not have to be followed lesson for lesson, as long as similar resources are used to teach the appropriate concepts.
