Common Sense Media

St. Joseph Digital Citizen Vision

We at St. Joseph School understand that the internet has become a part of our everyday lives. We believe it is important to educate our students on how to use the internet safely, responsibly and respectfully. As a school, our vision is to create students who are digitally aware of what they do and to give them tools in order to be a positive force on the internet. Through Common Sense Media, St. Joseph School will teach our students to harness the skills to make good decisions when using technology. To accomplish this, each year our students will receive at least 3 hours of instruction on how to become responsible digital citizens.
