Monterey County Home Charter School will facilitate each student's development of the technological schools and knowledge needed to be a responsible digital citizen and an effective user of technology.
Monterey County Home Charter School is partnering with Common Sense Media to deliver curriculum designed to assist students in becoming even more respectful and more responsible digital citizens! In addition, delivery of such curriculum ensures that MCHCS is in compliance with AB 86 (EC 48900 - i.e., cyberbullying) and AB 746 (EC 32261 - i.e., the posting of messages on social network internet websites and applications).
MCHCS's first "Digital Citizenship Awareness Month" (DCAM) began in March of 2014. Currently-enrolled students should check with their teacher to ensure that they have satisfied the requirements of DCAM; in short, however, students will be required to complete at least one unit from the Common Sense Media Library.
MCHCS began offering two DCAMs per school year during the 2014-15 school year: one in October, and the other in February or March.
As of 2016-17, the DCAMs have transitioned to November and March.
Please see the Monthly Events Calendar for Digital Citizenship Awareness Month activities.
