Dear County and District Superintendents and Charter School Administrators:

Fall Digital Citizenship Week 2018

The California Department of Education (CDE), in collaboration with Common Sense Education, will celebrate Fall Digital Citizenship Week from October 15, 2018, to October 19, 2018. California focuses on Digital Citizenship each October to emphasize the importance of ongoing discussions of the topic. Participants will focus on the 21st Century skills California students need to succeed in school and in life. More specifically, the week emphasizes ongoing efforts to empower students in the areas of critical thinking, online safety, and responsible use of technology at school and at home.

Fall Digital Citizenship Week 2018 focuses on:

  • Online Privacy
  • Media/Online Literacy
  • Anti-Bullying
  • Positive Online Communities/Digital Leadership

For classroom and family resources, please visit the CDE Digital Citizenship Week web page at https://www.cde.ca.gov/ls/et/dc/dcwk2018.asp.
