    Digital Citizenship

    Digital media and technology are evolving at a rapid pace, both opening up extraordinary opportunities and posing real risks for young people.  Students are using the power of the internet to explore, learn, connect, and create in ways never before imagined- both in and out of the classroom.  However, issues that emerge from this constant “connected culture” are important to address. It’s our role to educate youth about these risks so that they are fully informed users of technology. To read more, please go to the PARENTS tab above and click on DIGITAL CITIZENSHIP............
