Common Sense School

Common Sense Education — a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving families by providing trustworthy information, education and an independent voice for students in a world of media and technology — has recognized Northwest ISD as a 2020-22 Common Sense District for its lessons on digital citizenship and use of technology.

Northwest ISD's commitment to digital citizenship has deep roots in the district. NISD has been recognized as a Common Sense Certified school district for the last six years for its efforts in teaching digital citizenship to young people and supporting educators using technology for learning. The designation recognizes that NISD provides safe and innovative spaces for students to thrive as they harness the full potential of technology for learning and life.

All NISD students engage in Digital Citizenship lessons based on Common Sense resources as well as local stakeholder resources and input, covering topics such as internet safety, cyberbullying, privacy, security, copyright, creative use, social media, personal digital footprint, and more.

Northwest ISD is dedicated to developing students into digital citizens who know how to harness the learning potential of digital media safely, effectively, ethically and respectfully in an always-connected world.

The digital citizenship effort at Northwest ISD is led by the district's instructional technology team, which coordinates with the district's curriculum and technology staff.
