Fulton County Schools has embraced digital citizenship as an important part of educating today's students. Our district believes that preparing students to use technology safely and responsibly is an essential commitment as we leverage educational technology to personalize learning and boost student engagement. As a result of this belief, we teach all students tangible skills related to internet safety, protecting online reputations, personal privacy, managing online relationships, and respecting creative copyright. Fulton County has been approved as a Common Sense Certified District for Digital Citizenship, an honor that recognizes our efforts in teaching digital citizenship to young people and engaging the entire community in this important discussion. This recognition is provided by Common Sense Education, part of a national nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of kids and families by providing the trustworthy information, education, and independent voice they need to thrive in a world of media and technology.
