Digital Citizenship

Provides resources for parents, administrators, and students on appropriate Digital Citizenship. Resources include publications, sample policies, and frequently asked questions.

In an effort to lead students in the ever changing digital world, it is important to help students take ownership of their online and offline lives. This also includes partnering with parents to empower parents and help them make smart choices with their students.

The goal is to identify resources that can help students learn 21st century skills such as digital citizenship, information literacy, and safe and legal Internet use (for example, those surrounding plagiarism and pirating music and movies).
