Lewis County Earned Digitally Certified District via Common Sense Media

Throughout the 2016-2017 School year Lewis County demonstrated its commitment 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. 


Lewis County Schools earned this certificate through Common Sense Media with the use of a variety of their digitally certified lessons. These lessons covered digital topics including cyberbullying, managing your digital presence, password security, online scams, online relationships, and many others topics that will help students navigate the digital world. These lessons reached students at each programmatic level.
