Digital Citizenship Presentation

Nowhere is exempt from the inappropriate use of social media and technology, and through careful planning, the staff at Spencer High School, along with the help of community volunteers, set out to proactively address the issue.  Through a presentation about digital citizenship and ethical lessons conducted by Clay County Attorney Kristi Busse and Dickinson County Attorney Travis Johnson, school officials hope to educate students about the social, emotional and legal ramifications of technology related crimes.  “We chose to do the presentation because we care about our students, and we want them to be safe.  As young people, sometimes they just don’t know,” shared Principal Elli Wiemers, when asked about the decision to host the presentation.

After the presentation, students spent time with their homeroom teachers to debrief through small group discussion.  “During the presentation, our kids’ behavior was respectful and demonstrated that they understood the importance of the message and the seriousness of the topic, and I am hopeful that they will take it to heart,” said Mrs. Wiemers.
