The South Sioux City Community School District is committed to promoting positive and healthy choices for our students and their families. On Thursday, January 27, 2022 National Speaker, Karen Haase from KSB School Law Firm will present “The Ins & Outs of Digital Citizenship”. Haase will discuss legal issues related to social media and phone use.  

Haase has a background as an educator. She is cutting edge when it comes to school law and believes passionately that schools should use technology to increase engagement and student achievement. As a result, Hasse works tirelessly to be an authority on the intersection of digital citizenship and education. 

Haase shares her legal stories with parents and students at assemblies across Nebraska and at conferences across the nation.  She has a straight talk with students about consequences and encourages parents to be aware of what their children are doing on their smartphones.

We are inviting parents and the media to watch the presentations via YouTube on Thursday, January 27th.  Karen Haase will be speaking with the following groups about Digital Citizenship and the most common mistakes she sees students make on social media: cyberbullying, sexting and ignoring basic internet safety.
