We want to partner with parents as we implement new technologies for our students, and we want our parents to feel well equipped to understand how different technologies function for your child. We also want you to understand that the device is first and foremost a learning tool, and we expect students to use their device responsibly and with good digital citizenship skills at the forefront of everything they do. Digital citizenship is an important part of today’s world, and helping your student become a positive role model in the digital world is an important part of the Southeast Polk’s 1:1 Program.
