    Welcome to the 24/7 Respect Week Internet Safety Resource Page! We hope that you enjoyed watching the “Stay Out of the Box” video and engaging in the lessons. On this page, you’ll find our video, resources, and information to help you continuing showing respect 24/7.

    As you navigate this page, just remember:

    • Think before you speak, text, or post.
    • Ask yourself is it welcome, true, or kind?
    • Anyone can see what you post!

    Use the links below for resources and information that can help you be respectful to everyone in your life.

  • Want to report a bias-based comment or inappropriate use of social media?

  • Some of the resources use different vocabulary than we did in 24/7 Respect Week. For example, some sites mention microaggressions. When that word is used, the site is discussing bias-based comments. Despite these minor differences, all of the resources can help you show respect to your family, friends, and classmates.

    The Boston Public Schools would like to thank Commonsense Media for allowing us to use their Digital Citizenship lessons as a part of 24/7 Respect Week. Commonsense Media owns the rights to all images, media, and materials for lessons 2-5. If you would like more lesson materials, join their site and explore their resources.

    If you have a question, comment, or concern, please contact the Office of Equity for support. You can reach us at bpsequity@bostonpublicschools.org or at 617-635-9650.
