CHHS Working to Become a "Common Sense Recognized" Campus '19-'20

What is commonsense.org?


Last year, the GCISD technology department set a goal to become a "Common Sense Education Recognized" district. Part of reaching that goal and earning the recognition is that each campus fulfill requirements designated by Common Sense Education.


CHHS educators have been working to fulfill our campus requirements, which include providing information and resources concerning digital and media literacy to staff, students, and families.


Several times throughout the '19-'20 school year, students have participated in lessons provided by Common Sense Education. To view specific dates, lesson topics, & other resources, click on each section below.


Anyone can sign up for a FREE account at https://www.commonsense.org/education/ to view and/or use a variety of FREE resources.
