Digital Awareness for Parents, Families
Social Media use, Sexual Harassment, Cyberbullying, Phones, Digital Citizenship
SPUSD with tremendous support from SPEF is committed to helping our students become aware of their Digital Citizenship. This year they’re working with updated Common Sense Media courses, teaching students how to be good citizens online.
History teacher Mr. Andrew Adanto is leading the middle school students: 6th grade students have 6 classes with him during homeroom; 7th and 8th grade students get ‘refresher’ assemblies over the course of the year.
The Common Sense Media courses will also be available for parents and guardians through the PTA in the new year. Meanwhile, we have tips and tools for conversation for you to have with your children from last year’s program.
The school’s official policy and practice has information HERE.
The “Family Tip Sheets” (links below) from CommonSense Media provide strategies to help students use technology and digital devices in a safe, healthy way. These tip sheets are meant to spark conversation between parents/caregivers and children.
Please feel free to download any or all of them.
