Maintaining a Healthy Balance with Technology

Whether you work directly with students or you have children/grandchildren, we all interact with technology that is changing how we learn and communicate on a daily basis. We play an important role in helping students learn to manage their own use of technology independently and appropriately as we learn to do this ourselves. Digital Health and Wellness is an important discussion to revisit frequently with children from elementary school through high school.

In accordance with the District’s Electronic Technologies Acceptable Use Policy (#524), outside of school, parents/caregivers bear responsibility for the same guidance of internet use as they exercise with information sources such as television, telephones, radio, movies and other media. Parents/caregivers are responsible for monitoring their student’s use of the District’s educational technologies, including school-issued email accounts, iPads and the Internet if the student is accessing the District’s electronic technologies from home or through other remote location(s).
