Cyber Citizenship

 

Today’s students will be the first generation to use the Internet for their entire lives. This unprecedented access to resources will enhance their learning, research, communications, explorations for new ideas, and expressions of creativity. Unfortunately, this remarkable resource has become susceptible to abuse that often targets young people.

 

To address this concern, Assembly Bill 307 and S 1492 now require that all California students and teachers receive instruction in Internet Safety and ethical use of information. CUSD as part of our internet safety policy is educating minors about appropriate online behavior, including interacting with other individuals on social networking websites and in chat rooms and cyberbullying awareness and response.  CUSD has developed a web site with valuable resources matched with specific curriculum and training to protect children in the 21st Century. Through this program, CUSD is educating our community to become cyber safe and informed citizens. Cyber safe users are careful, digitally connected consumers. This web site provides information about cyber safety, its importance and resources for students, teachers and parents.

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS)

PBIS provides school sites with an organizational framework for improving the social climate of a school and supporting the impact of academic instruction on achievement as well as increasing proactive management. PBIS is a school-wide approach to supporting student learning that efficiently and effectively supports systems with evidence that these outcomes are achievable, and (d) practices supported and evaluated by data, (c) outcomes for decision making, (b) measurable data. In general, PBIS emphasizes four integrated elements: (a) implementation of these practices.

 

CUSD campuses using PBIS have many different activities and supports in place to reinforce a positive learning climate and culture. Some of the things that might be seen on campus include:

  • School-wide implementation day in the fall. The day is filled with direct teaching of school-wide expectations. This activity sets the expectations for all students and staff and establishes the learning climate.
  • School-wide reinforcement systems are in place to acknowledge students and staff who are displaying the expectations.
  • Visual prompts are seen around campus to remind everyone of the expectations.
  • Classrooms post and discuss expectations at the site.
  • Programs are in place to support an expectation of no bullying. Interventions for students who feel bullied are in place to ensure they have a safe environment.
  • Mentoring programs exist to provide additional support to students who are at risk.
  • Activities are structured into the year to reinforce the expectations of respect and responsibility.

PBIS provides a format to allow the school to support all students. Each site follows the basic principles of PBIS but adapts it to the specific site. Extensive information is also available on pbis.org.
