Digital Citizenship

BCPS Approach to Digital Citizenship

In Baltimore County Public Schools we recognize the importance of teaching our students to be safe, secure, and responsible when using technology for learning or for fun. We believe that with parents and guardians as our partners, we can help our students to gain skills, understandings, and dispositions that will enable them to be responsible and safe in these digital environments.

Students in K-12 are provided with direct instruction on these topics. The attached scope and sequence details the topics and student mastery expectations.

 BCPS Digital Citizenship Scope and Sequence

What can parents do?

  • Talk to your child about being safe, secure, and responsible online
  • Ask your child about the lessons and activities occurring in their classrooms
  • Set boundaries for your child’s online use
  • Remind your child that they can inform trusted adults if problems occur

What can students do?

  • Think about all that you know about digital citizenship
  • Practice what you’ve learned when you are online
