Digital Citizenship

Elementary ExperienceWelcome to the Digital Citizenship Initiative

PUSD is committed to supporting 21st century teaching and learning. Given the pace at which new technology tools and applications emerge, we recognize the need to implement a comprehensive program to teach the safe, effective and ethical use of digital age technologies to staff, students and parents.

In the 2012-2013 school year, all PUSD school sites taught digital citizenship, thereby complying with current legal mandates, such as the federal E-Rate/CIPA requirements. More importantly, through a commitment that all PUSD students are firmly grounded in what it means to be active, contributing (digital) citizens, the PUSD community is providing students with the skills required in a global economy, such as creativity, collaboration, critical thinking and problem solving.
