Digital Citizenship

Instilling the principles of good digital citizenship is essential in today's technology driven classroom. Kids connect, create, and collaborate through media. Mesa Union School District is focused on helping students reflect on the implications of their online actions. It is important that we empower children to make responsible, respectful, and safe choices about how they use powerful digital tools. Through Common Sense Parent Media Education and the District's Digital Citizenship Curriculum educators, administrators, and parents are provided tools and curricula needed to guide a generation in becoming responsible digital citizens.
