Digital Citizenship/Safety Principles Component: North Sevier Middle School does several things to promote Digital Citizenship & Safety. One is that all teacher receive a training on how to notice unsafe email and websites. This training helps teachers in their personal space but also with items students in their classes are working on. Our district has a filtering system that administration can work with district personal to limit or expand for student/teacher use or safety. Our school purchased the LANSchools program which is another layer of protection at school as it allows teachers to better monitor classroom technology use. During our FLEX times, we pull students into a class taught by our SRO which addresses digital dangers and safety as part of middle school NOVA lessons. Finally, we participate in White Ribbon Week (using technology safety) each year that teaches internet safety to students and also have an assembly by NetSmartz during the week which discusses internet & online safety.
