Now, more than ever before, Digital Citizenship for students is paramount in education. All Orange Unified schools are working towards becoming certified as a Common Sense School. Earning the Common Sense School badge is a symbol of our school's dedication to helping students think critically and use technology responsibly to learn, create, and participate.

All students in Orange Unified are guided through a minimum of three (3) Digital Citizenship Lessons utilizing the Common Sense Curriculum. Parents are welcome to view these lessons through the Educational Technology website, direct link here.



As part of our commitment to ensure that families are knowledgeable and and able to navigate the ups and downs of raising kids in today's digital age, we would like to ensure the following resources are available:
