State Board adopts resolution in support of Colorado Digital Citizenship Day on April 22
The Colorado State Board of Education voted unanimously to adopt a resolution to support Monday, April 22 as Colorado Digital Citizenship Day (PDF). The resolution states, “We support families and schools working together with children to learn how to be safe online and how to safeguard against practices that would jeopardize each person’s individual, private information.”
The resolution goes on to say that Colorado Digital Citizenship Day will focus on the important issues facing children and their families in our 24/7 digital world.
In other activities in support of the resolution, Gov. John Hickenlooper, Denver Public Schools and DaVita will celebrate the state’s first Digital Citizenship Day with 130 fourth- and fifth-graders at University Park Elementary School, 2300 S. St. Paul St., in Denver. The event begins at 10:30 a.m. on Monday, April 22.
