Cybersafety, Cyberbullying and Digital Citizenship
Safety and Digital Citizenship in Battle Ground
We take student safety very seriously, not only physically, but online as well. Battle Ground Public
Schools provide safeguards for Internet access. First, all Internet access is filtered to prevent
access to inapparopriate material on the Internet in compliance with the Children’s Internet Protection Act (2000) and the Protecting Children in the 21st Century Act (2008), both of which provide for online protection of kids. Schools and libraries must install protection measures that block access to material that is obscene, pornographic or otherwise deemed harmful to minors. In addition, schools must adopt and implement an Internet safety policy that addresses access by minors to the following: inappropriate matter on the Internet; the safety and security of minors when communicating online; illegal activities; and the disclosure of personal information about minors.
Digital Citizenship and Responsible Use
Digital citizenship refers to the concept of using technology resources appropriately, ranging from etiquette and communication skills, to copyright and legal understanding of their actions online.
