 Tuckaseegee Elementary School is dedicated to the development of a society of citizens who are innovative, adaptable, and productive.  By capitalizing on 

student strengths, passions, talents, and interests, every student will know 

that learning is possible, and possibilities are endless.

Student Centered – Students are at the heart of every decision we make; We plan and align

actions and resources to what is best for students
Community – Everyone is valued and respected; We foster a joyful, positive and supportive 

environment through open communication, celebration, and collaboration
Diversity – The diversity of our team is one of our greatest strengths; We recognize, affirm, 

and value the contributions and unique perspectives of each person
Dependability – We build confidence by being accountable for our words and actions
Learning – We continuously reflect and actively seek opportunities to learn and grow

Personalized Learning  empowers and nurtures the social, emotional, 

academic, and developmental needs of each self-directed 21st-

century  learner.

                                                                           Digital Citizenship

digital citizenship.png



  Digital Citizenship is a concept which helps teachers, technology leaders

and parents to understand what students/children/technology users

should know to use technology appropriately. Digital Citizenship is more 

than just a teaching tool; it is a way to prepare students/technology users

for a society full of technology. Digital citizenship is the norms of

appropriate, responsible technology use.  Too often we are seeing

students as well as adults misusing and abusing technology but not sure

what to do. The issue is more than what the users do not know but what

is considered appropriate technology usage.
