Diamond Lake District 76

Digital Citizenship

We have the ability to enhance your child’s education through the use of the Internet. The Internet is an electronic network connecting thousands of computers all over the world with millions of individual subscribers. Student access is available in the library, computer labs, and classrooms to find information and news, join educational related discussion groups, and access libraries, including the Library of Congress. 

Students will utilize the Internet for school-based projects only when a teacher suggests that additional sources can add a dimension to class work and homework. Along with access to computers and people all over the world comes the availability of material that may not be considered of educational value in a school setting. Additionally, intertwined with the valuable material on the World Wide Web is inaccurate content based on opinions, not fact. District 76 is not responsible for inappropriate or inaccurate materials, but we will make every effort to teach skills to evaluate the information found. With this educational opportunity also comes responsibility.
