• Raising and educating young people in today’s 24/7 digital media environment is one of the most exciting and overwhelming challenges that parents and schools face today. Students are growing up in a world where technology plays an increasingly larger role in their daily lives in and outside the classroom. Over the last few years, students have been particularly reliant on technology for their educational needs. Although students have become well versed with a variety of tech tools, they still need guidance when it comes to using the internet safely and responsibly. Working together with Common Sense Education, all K-5 students receive instruction on how to be smart, responsible, and respectful digital citizens. Our goal is to build a foundation so students will use technology to enhance their learning and their lives as they grow older. In addition to school-based instruction, we strongly encourage parents and caregivers to play an active role in their student's use of technology at home. To help you talk with your children about Internet Safety and how to be a good Digital Citizen, the following Parent Resources are available for you to review. It is recommended that you preview these resources prior to sharing them with students.
