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.
