SHSFA Recognized by common sense media

SHSFA Recognized by common sense media
We are happy to announce that Common Sense Media, the national nonprofit organization dedicated to helping kids and families thrive in a world of digital media and technology, has recognized Spartanburg High School and the Freshman Academy as a Common Sense Digital Citizenship Certified School for educating our students to be safe, smart, and ethical digital citizens. This year, students received many lessons on establishing positive online identities, cyber bullying, internet privacy, along with a number of other digital citizenship topics. This goes a long way to showing our kids what it means to be responsible with their technology, but our parents and community can help, too. Common Sense is also a great resource for parents who want advice navigating our digital world. Check out their website for parenting resources, media reviews and app information:
