LISD's Commitment to Digital Citizenship for all Students
Why Digital Citizenship Focus?
Each grade level has Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) standards or guidelines that reference digital citizenship and digital literacy. Digital citizenship education is also a federal mandate.
Lewisville ISD has made a commitment to building digital citizenship skills for all students. This is a multifaceted approach including a stand-alone curriculum and lessons integrated into the content area curriculum. The infographic below outlines topics for the stand-alone curriculum by grade level. Campus teams are encouraged to provide additional opportunities for students to build upon these valuable skills.
LISD Required Lessons
Digital Citizenship curriculum is required in grades 4 though 7. Topics by grade level are listed below.
