For students

Digital citizenship is a key part of learning how to use technology. VPS filters internet content; actively manages district-issued devices; and teaches digital citizenship, which is about appropriate, responsible behavior when using technology that applies not just to the school environment, but to the world around us.

For parents

Students’ curiosity and access to personal technology make it important for parents to monitor their child’s use of technology and reinforce digital citizenship practices. No filtering solution can prevent students from exposure to all inappropriate content, especially if they are intentionally trying to access it.
