Canyons School District’s digital citizenship goal is to empower students to think critically, behave safely, and participate responsibly in our digital world. From lesson plans, videos, student interactives, assemblies, to professional learning and family outreach materials, our hope is to provide schools with information they need to take a whole-community approach to digital citizenship.
During the month of October, CSD will focus on School Safety. This includes a week of digital/technology safety. October 8-12, 2019 is our district Digital Citizenship Week. Schools are encouraged to align their efforts with the district as we share and provide our students, parents and stakeholders annual information updates on digital citizenship.
Many PTA/PTOs plan activities and events around this same time and often refer to it as White Ribbon Week. Sometimes the events and presenters are not able to align perfectly with our district week, but information should be available from schools sometime during the month of October.
Each school has a Digitial Citizenship representative that receives training and resources from our Educational Technology team in our Instructional Supports Department. This team provides school representatives with monthly technology tips, lesson plans, and parent information to distribute throughout the school. From cyberbullying and photo sharing to digital footprints and online safety, we want to help students and parents address important topics and have meaningful conversations about making great choices in their digital lives. The DigCit rep. is a part of the technology team that works with our SCC.
During the October SCC meeting, the school-based technology team and administration will share the school technology plan. The plan includes how the school will provide student technology education, parent technology education and information about our district’s filtering and networks support system.
- Principals, SCC Chair and DigCIt Building representatives will sign and submit their plan to the CSD Board of Education.
