At the beginning of the school year. How Is It Taught? The Digital Learning Department has created training videos that all students are required to view. In order to ensure grade level appropriateness separate videos were created for Grades K-1, 2-5, and Finding the Videos- Videos can be found on VBrick (go to TuneIn2 and conduct a search for “Digital Citizenship”). Can The Videos Be Shown in an Assembly Setting? Yes! Simply document that each student was present at the assembly to ensure that all students view the video for their grade level.
ALL of The Students on my campus have viewed the videos, now what? Please complete the “Digital Citizenship Verification Form” and submit as an attachment (after signing and scanning), via interoffice mail, or fax ((281) ) to: Mary Connealy. What is expected of Students and Parents? The Digital Citizenship documentation and consent form is provided to students and parents as part of the FBISD Student/Parent Handbook. Parents and students must make a selection via the Parent Consent Checklist. The consent form selection is mandatory for Digital Citizenship during new student registration and upon entering grades six and nine. The consent selection remains in place during subsequent years unless the parent elects to resubmit.
