KES Continues to be a Common Sense School

Common Sense School 2020-2022Digital media and technology are evolving at a dizzying pace, both unlocking extraordinary opportunities and posing real risks for young people. Students are using the immense power of the internet and mobile technology to explore, connect, create, and learn in ways never before imagined, both in and out of the classroom. At the same time, tech use can bring up ethical challenges such as cyberbullying and misinformation and health issues related to media balance and social and emotional well-being. 

Kaechele sees these as teachable moments. We believe that digital citizenship skills have become essential for students in the 21st century, especially this school year. That’s why we are committed to teaching our students how to be digital learners, leaders, and citizens.

Kaechele has  just been approved as a Common Sense School, an honor that recognizes our efforts in teaching digital citizenship to young people and engaging the entire school community in this important discussion. The recognition acknowledges our school’s commitment to helping students build skills that are essential for their well-being today—and for the opportunities they’ll have tomorrow.
