Santa Cruz City Schools Parent Night at SCCS .iKeepSafe and OnGuardOnline were quite helpful last year when our school planned and hosted a Cybersafety Information Night for parents and Cybersafety Week for kids at school. They gave us (for free!) many resources to use for a presentation and also to give to all the parents and kids, including PowerPoint presentations with scripts, CD-ROM’s with resources, print books and pamplets, and DVD’s. Every kid and parent got a free booklet and CD-ROM (all for free). Representatives from the FBI and our local police department all spoke to the issue at the information night for parents and during the school day to our students.

Nine Themes of Digital Citizenship--Digital citizenship can be defined as the norms of appropriate, responsible behavior with regard to technology use.
Welcome to the Digital Citizenship Website --Digital Citizenship is a concept which helps teachers, technology leaders and parents to understand what students/children/technology users should know to use technology appropriately. Digital Citizenship is more than just a teaching tool; it is a way to prepare students/technology users for a society full of technology. Too often we are seeing students as well as adults misusing and abusing technology but not sure what to do. The issue is more than what the users do not know but what is considered appropriate technology usage.
