Cache County School District was approved for another year as a Common Sense Digital Citizenship Certified District for the 2016-17 school year. This is an honor that recognizes our efforts in teaching digital citizenship to our students and engaging the entire community in this important discussion. This recognition is provided by Common Sense Education, part of a national nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of kids and families by providing the trustworthy information, education, and independent voice they need to thrive in a world of media and technology.
There are more than 100,000 schools across the country that use Common Sense Education's groundbreaking education resources and CCSD is one of only a handful in the country to have met the criteria to become a Digital Citizenship Certified District, with 100 percent of our schools meeting the requirements to become digital citizenship certified. As a result, our students are better equipped to navigate the digital world and use devices for learning.
For the 2017-18 school year, our media specialists are working with computer specialists to teach digital citizenship and reapply for certification. Our goal this year is for all schools to meet the requirements to become digital citizenship certified through Common Sense Media.
