Certified School Digital Citizenship badge

SANGAREE MIDDLE SCHOOL recognized as a Common Sense Certified School: Digital Citizenship

Common Sense, the national nonprofit organization dedicated to helping kids and families thrive in a world of digital media and technology, has recognized SANGAREE MIDDLE SCHOOL as a Common Sense Certified School: Digital Citizenship.

 SANGAREE MIDDLE SCHOOL has demonstrated its commitment to taking a whole-community approach to preparing its students to use the immense power of digital media to explore, create, connect, and learn, while limiting the perils that exist in the online realm, such as plagiarism, loss of privacy, and cyberbullying.

"We applaud the faculty and staff of SANGAREE MIDDLE SCHOOL for embracing digital citizenship as an important part of their students' education," said Jessica Lindl, Head of Common Sense Education. "SANGAREE MIDDLE SCHOOL deserves high praise for giving its students the foundational skills they need to compete and succeed in the 21st-century workplace and participate ethically in society at large."

 SANGAREE MIDDLE SCHOOL has been using Common Sense Education's innovative and research-based digital citizenship resources, which were created in collaboration with Dr. Howard Gardner of the GoodPlay Project at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. The resources teach students, educators, and parents tangible skills related to Internet safety, protecting online reputations and personal privacy, managing online relationships, and respecting creative copyright. The free resources are currently used in more than 90,000 classrooms nationwide.

"We're honored to be recognized as a Common Sense Digital Citizenship Certified School," said Mrs. Day. "By preparing our students to use technology safely and responsibly, we are providing them unlimited opportunities to maximize and personalize their learning."
