Digital Citizenship

Keeping Our Students Safe in a Digital World

With so many recent technological advances, our students find that being able to connect and communicate 24/7 from just about any location is normal. Electronic devices are used for listening to music, texting, filming videos, snapping and sharing photos, and accessing internet content such as social media websites and video streaming channels.  At Bowie High School we want our students to make wise choices while they take advantage of the powerful technology available to them.  At the same time the students must beware of the pitfalls of internet use which include:

  • Cyber bullying
  • Sexting
  • Digital relationships
  • Compromising their privacy
  • Establishing a damaging Digital Footprint

EPISD and Bowie have partnered with Common Sense Media to provide resources, tips, videos, and other materials to help parents and teachers keep our students safe in the digital world.

 Digital Citizenship Vision Statement

All students at Bowie High School will become responsible digital citizens who know how to harness the learning potential of digital media in a 24/7 connected world, safely, effectively, ethically, and respectfully. In order to accomplish this goal, students will receive at least 3 hours of instruction on how to become a responsible digital citizen each year.
