A key component of Evergreen’s focus on personalization is ensuring that our schools, students, and staff have equitable access to technology - including devices, software, and infrastructure - which supports Essentials of Personalized teaching and learning. With greater access to technology also comes the need for educators and parents to work together to help students understand how the digital world works.

Internet Safety & Digital Citizenship
Why does cyberspace matter to parents and children?
At Evergreen Public Schools, we want students to feel safe in cyberspace. We want our students to be equipped with the necessary tools to navigate powerful technology. In order for our students to make good choices, they have to learn how the digital world operates. Students are exposed to making choices that are greater than their maturity level. The technology available to students can be a great resource and also have a harmful effect on them at the same time. Knowing "Digital Ethics" could be the difference between an enjoyable experience or a harmful one while surfing the web.
Digital citizenship is defined as the norms of appropriate, responsible behavior with regard to technology use. By embracing technology and to explore its various forms, students have a responsibility to model proper digital etiquette in using technology. Navigating the web intelligently and making appropriate decisions when using technology is an example of a good digital citizen. We want our children and students to carefully navigate the web while adhering to protocols that are symbolic of good digital citizenship.
