DIGITAL CITIZENSHIP PILOT

Students’ online safety is an area of great concern for parents in Nashville.

However, school district data reveals that only 14% of students are receiving regular instruction in this area and only 24% of teachers report that they are highly knowledgeable of digital citizenship skills. The Learning Technology A-Team has identified this as a growth opportunity for the district to ensure that our parents understand the roles and responsibilities of technology in the life of their students.

The Digital Citizenship Pilot calls on community programs, PTOs and other organizations that serve MNPS families at Cane Ridge High School, Marshall Middle, Antioch Middle, and/or Eagle View Elementary to help develop and deliver Digital Citizenship programming to parents.
