Join us for a presentation on “Digital Citizenship”

Parents will learn how we are preparing your child to stay informed and safe in our digital world.   What is digital citizenship? What is a digital footprint? How do we protect our children from digital predators?   These questions and others you may have will be answered in the presentation.  We look forward to seeing you at Burges High School.

Digital Citizenship Vision Statement
Burges HS strives to prepare its students for future success by implementing best practices both online and offline. Being a one to one campus it is of the highest priority that students have a full awareness of the potential dangers and benefits of online activity. Burges will implement the Common Sense Digital Citizenship Curriculum to help all students build this awareness and a positive digital footprint. The campus and its community will strive to be positive role models for digital citizenship by portraying respectful behavior online and redirecting those that may not be using proper online practices.

At Burges High School, we want our students to make good decisions so they can take advantage of the powerful technology that fills their lives both at school and at home. But in order to make good choices, students must know how the digital world works. The stakes are high because our kids’ technological abilities can be greater than their maturity and judgment.Having unrestricted access to information and people can result in gaining a wealth of information and experiences. But it can also mean accessing inappropriate content and exposure to risks such as:

  • Cyber bullying
  • Sexting
  • Digital relationships
  • Compromising their privacy
  • Establishing a damaging Digital Footprint
