Peeples Elementary School in Fayetteville has become the third Fayette County public school to receive digital citizenship certification by Common Sense Media.
The nonprofit organization encourages children and families make informed media choices and use technology responsibly. Fayetteville and Sara Harp Minter elementary schools were certified earlier this year. To qualify, students, teachers and parents at all of the schools engaged in lessons that taught digital safety and responsibility, including information about literacy, privacy, security and effective communication.
The certification is valid for one year, after which schools and teachers can apply for renewal.
