Digital Citizenship

June 9, 2019

What is Digital Citizenship?

Just like there are standards for being a good citizen in our communities, nation, and the world, there are standards for being a good digital citizen.  Digital citizenship includes digital communication, the use of digital materials, searching and sharing information on the internet, buying and selling online, and more!  Being a good digital citizen means being mindful about the way we interact in the digital environment.  At MSAD60 we strive to foster good digital citizenship, consistent with our mission statement: 


We empower all students to develop an enthusiasm for learning, foster confidence through successes and failures, provide service to others, and achieve their personal, social, and academic best,

leading to fulfilling and engaged lives for all.
