Letter to the Editor
Bond invests in kids, reader says

April 18, 2012

Dear Editor,

Did you attend the school district's technology showcase? It was exciting to see how many different ways our teachers are using technology at various grade levels to engage students in learning. It's not about putting a screen in front of kids. Our teachers are using technology to help all kids learn and collaborate and become better thinkers and problem-solvers. I walked out of that showcase convinced that ALL kids in the district need to have those same opportunities.

Our administrators have clearly spent a lot of time researching and thinking through the purpose, implementation and safety of technology as a key tool in engaging our kids in their education.

The technology showcase and the long-term technology plan that was shared with the board of education on April 9 proved to me this is the right strategy for our kids and their future. By voting yes on May 8, we will be making an investment that will prepare all of the kids within the district to compete and be productive, positive contributors in a global economy.
