In compliance with CIPA (The Children's Internet Protection Act) and to qualify for E-Rate funding, the Augusta School Department has designed a curriculum to teach digital citizenship in our schools. The curriculum is based on lessons provided by Common Sense Media. Topics include: Internet Safety, Privacy and Security, Cyberbullying, Digital Footprint and Reputation, Information Literacy, and Creative Credit and Copyright.

To assist parents in dealing with the difficult task of teaching kids responsible and ethical behavior regarding internet media use, Common Sense Media has provided schools with Tip Sheets for parents. In an effort to reduce printing, we are making the tip sheets available to download from our web site.
