Digital Citizenship Resources for Family Engagement

Working together, schools and families can prepare kids to think critically and use technology in positive, creative, and powerful ways. The K–12 Digital Citizenship Curriculum's Family Tips and Family Activities cover all six curriculum topics and are available in English and Spanish. Additional languages are available for the Family Tips and Digital Citizenship Curriculum Family Letters as bundled PDFs. Print out these resources to send home, or share them on your school's website or social feed or at your next parent night.

To plan a school- or district-wide program for families, start with our Engaging Families in Digital Citizenship implementation guide.
