Our last District Tech Committee meeting on Thursday, November 9th was a productive one. Several hot topics were discussed and there were some great conversations around those topics. We decided as a committee to begin reducing filter restrictions and promoting digital learning relative to digital citizenship. This is and will be be an ongoing goal and the filter changes will be implemented slowly and effectively. Our district has already done a fantastic job of implementing this type of training and we would like to support and expand those endeavors. The first round of filtering lifts will include news sites that have comment sections. I would like to thank our wonderful staff and administration for agreeing to meet and discuss these difficult and polarizing topics and come to an agreement for the benefit of our students and district. I look forward to many more productive meetings.
