Digital Citizenship

Digital Citizenship refers to the responsible use of technology by anyone who uses computers, the internet, and digital devices to engage with society.
The internet is packed with potential pitfalls that could catch many children off-guard. More importantly, malicious internet users can quickly harm someone online, even if it's only through harsh words.

Which is why digital citizenship is such a crucial topic to teach today's children!
Prince George Schools are committed to providing all students with the most appropriate technological tools to enhance and support quality education and to produce active participants in the worldwide community of the 21st century.
In order to do so, they must have an understanding of proper use of technology, understand the basics of online safety, follow guidelines set in the division's Acceptable Use Policy, respect the work of others posted online, as well as act appropriately in the virtual world by preventing bullying and identifying strategies to address it.
Please carefully review the division's Student Conduct Handbook to view the county's mission, vision and acceptable use policy.
