Our first parent workshop was held on Tuesday, October 4, on the topic of Internet Safety. To access the resources that were shared with those in attendance, visit the TL2014 Parent Workshop – Internet Safety site. Here you will find links to resources and videos that were discussed as part of the presentation. In the future, all workshop resources will be posted to this site.
As a result of the conversations during the first workshop, the District will be planning a workshop on Mac Basics to help parents understand the Mac operating system and how to best monitor student home use of the laptop computers. We will schedule this soon and post details online.
