Renton School District

Digital Citizenship and Responsible use

To help students navigate technology and digital resources, understand the expectations for responsible use, and become excellent digital citizens, please review the resources below.

Students of all ages using technology

Digital Citizenship

The district teaches students about digital citizenship starting from Kindergarten and provides resources to families such as:

  • How much screen time is okay for my kids?
  • How do I protect my kid's privacy online?
  • What are the basic social media rules?

See the Digital Citizenship Resources

Responsible Use Policy

The Responsible Use Policy (RUP) treats the student as a person who is responsible for their own ethical and appropriate use of the Internet and their devices.

Students and families should read the policy together to understand what responsible use is and how students can manage their devices appropriately.

Read the Responsible Use Policy

Device Filtering and Monitoring

In order to protect students while online, the district Chromebooks are filtered and monitored, both at school and off campus. The filtering is consistent with federal regulations (CIPA) and the monitoring, which uses the program GoGuardian, provides information regarding student activity online that may indicate unsafe behaviors. Families may receive alerts from our monitoring software if their student has searched for materials which may indicate a self-harm concern. These alerts are meant to provide a family the resources to begin a conversation to address any potential health concerns.

In addition, we have provided families access to GoGuardian Parent, a mobile app to help keep parents/guardians aware of their children's activity on school-issued devices and provide additional controls during out-of-school hours. You can find more information about this app on the Technology Safety Information for Families webpage under "GoGuardian Parent App".
