Digital Citizenship Week Concludes Today

It's October 19, the final day of Digital Citizenship Week.  We began the week with a blog about bullying, including cyberbullying, and avoiding that is just one part of being a good digital citizen.  Other parts include being as secure and safe as possible while online and understanding that what you share or post online can remain forever even if you think you've deleted those items.  Here at the American School, we take student privacy and security very seriously.  Each student is given a unique student number and password to access the online student center after he or she enrolls in an accredited middle school program or accredited high school program.  Our own servers, which contain records for thousands of students who take our courses, are backed up regularly and secured as tightly as possible.  We want you to feel safe after you make us your distance education high school or middle school, and we want you to be good digital citizens after you complete your courses with us!
