Common Sense, the national nonprofit organization dedicated to helping kids and families thrive in a world of digital media and technology, has once again recognized the Raytown C-2 School District as a Common Sense Digital Citizenship Certified District. This is the second year in a row the District has received certification from Common Sense. 

Raytown C-2 School District has demonstrated its commitment to taking a whole-community approach to preparing its students to use the immense power of digital media to explore, create, connect, and learn, while limiting the perils that exist in the online realm, such as plagiarism, loss of privacy, and cyberbullying. 

"We applaud the faculty and staff of the Raytown School District for embracing digital citizenship as an important part of their students' education," said Jessica Lindl, Head of Common Sense Education. "Raytown School District deserves high praise for giving its students the foundational skills they need to compete and succeed in the 21st-century workplace and participate ethically in society at large."

Raytown has been using Common Sense Education's innovative and research-based digital citizenship resources, which were created in collaboration with Dr. Howard Gardner of the GoodPlay Project at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. The resources teach students, educators, and parents tangible skills related to Internet safety, protecting online reputations and personal privacy, managing online relationships, and respecting creative copyright. The free resources are currently used in more than 100,000 classrooms nationwide.

"We're honored to be recognized as a Common Sense Digital Citizenship Certified District," Dr. Allan Markley, Superintendent said. "By preparing our students to use technology safely and responsibly, we are providing them unlimited opportunities to maximize and personalize their learning."
