Principal’s Message 10/13/14

Date: October 23, 2014 Author: admin Categories: Principals Message

Throughout October, SCSD schools are celebrating Safety and Digital Citizenship Month to support the development of positive media behaviors. Brittan Acres teachers hosted our White Oaks colleagues last Wednesday for collaborative planning to bring Digital Citizenship lessons into the classrooms in age-appropriate ways. Teachers explored Common Sense Media to select lessons across areas of Digital Citizenship: Internet Safety, Privacy and Security, Relationships and Communication, Cyberbullying, Digital Footprint and Reputation, Self Image and Identify, Information Literacy, Creative Credit and Copyright. The lessons will take place over the course of this school year, beginning this month.
How can you help at home? Check out these resources:

 

  • Family Media Agreement to start the conversation in your home
  • Family Tip Sheets by age level. Topics such as privacy and digital footprints, smart searching and more!
  • Parent Concerns Tab for tools and videos about issues such as screen time and social media

 

BA’s School Site Council meets 3:00 in the office conference room this Thursday. At our Site Council webpage you’ll see our agenda addresses BA’s Site Accountability/Professional Development Action Plan, the School Health Index BA will complete as part of the district-wide Coordinated School Health Model, and a discussion about surveying families re. information needs. Interested community members are welcome to attend.

Best wishes,
John Triska
