For them, finding a good school home for their son was a top priority.  "I did my research and everyone recommended Katy ISD as the best school district," said Peter Morcos, Christopher's father.  "We decided to move into Katy and look for a house in this area so that we are able to go to a Katy ISD school," added Morcos.   </p><p style="text-align:justify;">It's been no secret that families are moving west of Houston into what was known as a small suburb.  Communities zoned to the district have been flourishing at outstanding rates making Katy ISD one of the fastest growing school district, not just in Texas, but in the nation.  The quality of education offered in Katy ISD classrooms has attracted families from all parts of the world to what is now being called a destination school district.  </p><p style="text-align:justify;"><a href="https://youtu.be/hy4wlNcTpIg" title="Katy ISD Reaches Historical Milestone of Enrolling 80,000 Students!"><img src="/PublishingImages/Lists/latestnews/AllItems/110918_KDE_80000%20Student%20in%20Katy%20ISD.jpg" alt="110918_KDE_80000 Student in Katy ISD.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:393px;" /></a><br></p><p style="text-align:justify;"><a href="https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ugakv368u3txdq2/AAD8v6dOSjy4DCep3cH0TjJ4a?dl=0">Photo gallery of 80,000th student celebration for newscasts and publications.</a><br></p><p><br></p></div>

Katy ISD was the largest school district, with close to 80,000 students to receive this grade.  Just recently Niche, an educational data analysis site, also announced their "Top 10 Public Elementary Schools in the Houston Area" and Katy ISD took all 10 spots, plus an additional six.  </p><p style="text-align:justify;">"Providing exceptional instruction and learning, as well as a safe and secure environment, is a process that involves great teachers, parents, school staff, administrators, mentors, volunteers, businesses, parent support groups, along with local and state governments," said Board of Trustees President Courtney Doyle.</p><p><a href="https://www.dropbox.com/sh/f8dixb0tfkx3op7/AAA_B7B_DB9EUauao-sXZwlaa?dl=0">Photo Gallery of State of the District Event</a><br></p><p><br></p></div>

This is a campaign that creates awareness with young people and also with their parents," said Robert Jinks, Katy ISD Chief of Police.<br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">According to authorities, posting false threats through social media platforms or any electronic means, not only requires countless hours of investigation by law enforcement agencies but it also drains school resources and ends up costing taxpayers' money.   In some cases, schools shut down resulting in the loss of instructional time for students and teachers.  </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Misguided attempts at humor are no laughing matter and can end up ruining a student's future aspirations and career opportunities.  Katy ISD seeks the public's assistance to curb hoax threats among our student population.  Below you will find additional resources to share with family and friends.  Remember hoax threats are not a joke, so <span style="text-decoration:underline;"><strong>think before you post!​</strong></span></p><p style="text-align:justify;"><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><strong></strong></span><strong style="text-align:left;">Resources:</strong></p><ul><li><a href="https://www.fbi.gov/video-repository/think-before-you-post-psa.mp4/view">Think Before You Post PSA</a> </li><li><a href="https://www.fbi.gov/audio-repository/ftw-podcast-hoax-threats-campaign-052318.mp3/view">FBI, This Week: Campaign Addresses Consequences of Hoax Threats</a> </li><li><a href="https://www.fbi.gov/audio-repository/ftw-podcast-espanol-hoax-threats-campaign-053118.mp3/view">Esta Semana en el FBI: Por Medio de una Campaña se Abordan las Consecuencias de las Amenaza</a></li><li>​</li><li></li></ul><div><span style="font-size:14px;"><img src="/PublishingImages/Lists/latestnews/AllItems/Think%20Before%20You%20Post%20Picture.jpg" alt="Think Before You Post Picture.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:607px;" /><br></span></div><div><span style="font-size:14px;"><img src="/PublishingImages/Lists/latestnews/AllItems/Think%20Before%20You%20Post%20Picture2.jpg" alt="Think Before You Post Picture2.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:589px;" /><br></span></div><div><span style="font-size:14px;"><br></span></div></div>

In their world, being able to connect and communicate 24/7 from just about any location is normal – and expected! Between kindergarten and fifth grade, kids go through rapid growth in learning about many topics, including digital media technologies. From playing games on their mom or dad's cell phone, to learning how to point and click a mouse, to navigating online by themselves, kids this age are participating in a connected culture.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong>W</strong><strong>h</strong><strong>y</strong><strong> </strong><strong>Do</strong><strong>e</strong><strong>s</strong><strong> </strong><strong>I</strong><strong>t</strong><strong> </strong><strong>M</strong><strong>a</strong><strong>t</strong><strong>t</strong><strong>e</strong><strong>r?</strong></p><p> </p><p>Young children need to learn early how to make good choices so they can take advantage of the powerful technologies available to them. And to make these good choices, kids need parental guidance.</p><p> </p><img alt="" style="width:326px;margin:5px;" /><p>The stakes are high because our kids' technological abilities can be greater than their maturity and judgment. Having unrestricted access to information and people can result in gaining a wealth of information and experiences. But it can also mean accessing inappropriate content and making inappropriate contact with others. The difference between a great experience and an iffy one lies in the decisions kids make. Just as kids learn to eat properly, swim safely, or drive a car carefully, they need to know how to live in the digital world responsibly and respectfully. Their ultimate success depends on their abilities to use digital media to create, collaborate, and communicate well with others. Those who master these skills in using digital tools will benefit from the digital world's awesome power.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong>co</strong><strong>m</strong><strong>mo</strong><strong>n</strong><strong> </strong><strong>se</strong><strong>n</strong><strong>s</strong><strong>e</strong><strong> </strong><strong>s</strong><strong>a</strong><strong>y</strong><strong>s</strong></p><p> </p><p><strong>Us</strong><strong>e </strong><strong> </strong><strong>bookmark</strong><strong>s</strong><strong> </strong><strong>an</strong><strong>d</strong><strong> </strong><strong>saf</strong><strong>e</strong><strong> </strong><strong>search</strong><strong>.</strong><strong> </strong>Teach your child to bookmark his or her favorite sites.

But we do. So we have to remember to extend our basic parenting wisdom to the digital world. We teach kids to choose their words carefully, play nicely with others, and respect their teachers. Now we have to extend those lessons to a vast, invisible world.</p><p> </p><p style="text-align:justify;"><strong>Pas</strong><strong>s</strong><strong> </strong><strong>alon</strong><strong>g</strong><strong> </strong><strong>you</strong><strong>r</strong><strong> </strong><strong>values</strong><strong>.</strong><strong> </strong>As a parent, you can translate your values into the digital world and help kids understand the implications of their actions. Oftentimes the same rules that apply in the real word apply online, such as "be nice to others," "don't say mean things," and "think critically about information."</p><p><br></p><p style="text-align:justify;"><strong>See</strong><strong>k</strong><strong> </strong><strong>balance</strong><strong>.</strong><strong> </strong>It's hard to know how much freedom to give kids. We want them to explore, enjoy, communicate, and create. We also want to be sure they are protected. If our kids are going to thrive with digital media, we must balance the negative with the positive, privacy with protection. As our children grow, they need more independence and privacy. But parents have to be sure their kids know how to be safe and responsible before letting them loose.</p><p> </p><p><strong>Kee</strong><strong>p </strong><strong> </strong><strong>a</strong><strong>n</strong><strong> </strong><strong>ope</strong><strong>n</strong><strong> </strong><strong>mind</strong><strong>.</strong><strong> </strong>We don't see the world the way our kids do. And we don't help our kids when we judge their lives through the lens of a non-digital world. It's important for us to understand that our kids will spend much of their lives in a connected world, where everyone creates and communicates. We need to help them to enjoy it and learn from it.</p><p><br></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><img alt="" style="width:174px;margin:5px;" /><img alt="" style="width:52px;margin:5px;" /><table cellspacing="0" width="100%" class="ms-rteTable-default"><tbody><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default" style="width:100%;"><table cellspacing="0" width="100%" class="ms-rteTable-default"><tbody><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default" style="width:100%;"><p>DIGITAL LIFE / TIP SHEET / DIGITAL LITERACY AND CITIZENSHIP  / REV DATE 2015</p><p><a href="http://www.commonsense.org/">w w w.commonsense.org  </a>|  CREATIVE COMMONS: AT TRIBUTION-NONCOMMERCIAL-SHAREALIKE</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p></td></tr></tbody></table><table cellspacing="0" width="100%" class="ms-rteTable-default"><tbody><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default" style="width:100%;"><table cellspacing="0" width="100%" class="ms-rteTable-default"><tbody><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default" style="width:100%;">1</td></tr></tbody></table><p>​ </p></td></tr></tbody></table><p><br></p></div>
