NACS will be using digital citizenship curriculum created locally and from Common Sense Media
. Specific instruction will be given at several intervals throughout the school year, and teachers will reinforce proper digital citizenship with students in all classes.
“At Northwest Allen County Schools, we believe in equipping students with 21st century skills that will enhance the learning experience while teaching them to become safe, responsible, and contributing members of an interconnected world. To do so, teachers will regularly provide explicit instruction in grades K-12 focused on topics such as internet safety, digital footprint, and cyberbullying. In addition to the instruction, teachers, staff, and students will model the values and behaviors expected of responsible digital citizens, encouraging others to do the same.”
