An Educational Services Department:
Our students are living in a digital world that requires them to interact in non-traditional ways. These new interactions require new knowledge and safety precautions by students, parents and educators. We have a responsibility to promote ethnical and safe interactions while we are using technology. We need to work toward ensuring that our students become responsible Digital Citizens.
Digital Citizenship can be defined as the norms of behavior with regard to technology use. As a way of understanding the complexity of Digital Citizenship and the issues of technology use, abuse, and misuse, the nine general areas of behavior that make up digital citizenship are identified below.
While there is no sure fire way to protect our children against Internet dangers, there are things we can do to become familiar with the technology our children use everyday and equip ourselves with basic safety rules and software tools that we can use to help protect them.
If you ever feel threatened or believe you are being bullied, please contact your school site administrator. If after contacting your school site administrator, you feel a resolution has not been reached, please contact the Student Services Department at 909-580-6525.
