Digital Citizenship

It's everyone's responsibility!
The Del Mar Union School District has a structured technology curriculum that teaches children in grades K - 6 about Digital Citizenship and what it means to be a good digital citizen. Discussions include the importance of adhering to district policies, respect for all technology equipment, respect for other students' work, cyber bullying and how to be safe in cyber space.
