This year, Valley Christian Schools has become one of eight California school districts to become “Common Sense Certified,” which means we met all of the requirements for teaching our students how to be safe and responsible digital citizens. The elementary school, middle school, and the high school all received individual certifications as well as 68 teachers who facilitated lessons in the fall. Our reasons for implementing this curriculum:
It is a tremendous responsibility to make sure our students are prepared for the digital world that surrounds them. It is a responsibility that we all share. As educators, parents, or supporters, let’s be mindful of how we model our own use of technology. Our kids are always watching and often will imitate what they see. Together, let’s do our best to prepare students to be safe and responsible users of technology.
