Social media and digital communication are essential parts of your world. Access to information brings tremendous advantages, but it also creates new responsibilities. The Student Social Media Guidelines explain how you can use social media responsibly, inside and outside of school.
Read about what is expected of students, parents, and teachers on the Digital Citizenship Responsibilities page.
It's important for you to know your rights, as well as the guidelines you are expected to follow. The Internet Acceptable Use and Safety Policy, and the Student Bill of Rights and Discipline Code can help you understand what you can and can't do, and what happens if you get in trouble.
If you want to learn more about digital literacy, citizenship, and social media use, ask your school librarian or technology teacher.If you have questions about the guidelines, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
