Our Project is a 3 point approach to Digital Citizenship: a Student Portal, a Parent Portal, and a Teacher Portal.
With a 1 to 1 netbook initiative taking place in our school next year we want to make our students, their parents, and our faculty great Digital Citizens. We think it is important that they learn what it is about and how they can implement the ideas of Digital Citizenship in their everyday lives, including their curriculum.

Below are a few links, these are all works in progress still and will change as we tailor more information to meet the needs of these groups.

Teacher portal
On this site you can find sample lessons that have been used in our Technology Communications class, and some other resources.

Parent portal
Is on our public website www.mcdevitths.org, under academics, and has a broad overview for parents. We are currently creating specific content geared toward parents.

Student portal: (Still being worked on)
Will have information geared specifically toward students.
