Parent Connection Sessions

11/29/16 Are You Cyber-Smart?

Have you used public Wi-Fi at a local business? Accepted a friend request from a stranger? Can you tell if an email you received is from a real person or if it is a scam? In today's world, simple digital decisions we make have the potential to cost us financially, personally, or professionally. Tech-savvy Advanced Technology Center students will discuss these topics and explain and demonstrate easy-to-implement tools to protect yourself in our connected environment. We will also discuss and demonstrate solutions to protect your data and information.

Are you as involved in your child’s education as you would like to be? See what new research shows about parent engagement in our schools.

Whether it is helping a child with homework, volunteering at a school event or simply working with teachers when an issue arises, parents are taking an active role in our schools. A recent survey shows that levels of parent involvement are increasing. But, there is always room for the school division to create new opportunities for parents and the community to become in engaged. We wanted to know how satisfied parents are with current opportunities and what barriers may be keeping them from being more involved. The school division recently worked with the local research firm Issues and Answers to survey parents about their involvement and communication needs. You can learn more about the survey and see the results here.
