Extended deadline for students to submit a one paragraph essay to join The Churchill Safe Tech Committee. The committee also needs a chair.
The Churchill Safe Tech Committee invites students to join the Committee. Interested students can submit a one paragraph essay on why they would like to join the committee to: email@example.com. The committee is also seeking a chair. Please reach out if you would like to get involved!
The Safe Tech Committee was created by a group of parents interested in “the smart and safe use of technology at our schools, its impact on students’ physical and mental health, digital privacy and evolving safety guidelines. We read the latest science and studies and relay trends and concerns to MCPS and our Board of Education.” See http://www.mccpta.org/safe-tech-about-us.html for more. There is also a subcommittee formed from the online Churchill parents forum. Last year, the committee brought in speakers to PTSA meeting on the challenges and dangers of over-use of screen time, safe use of applications and platforms. During the pandemic, our teens are online more than ever. The Safe Tech committee has formed many cautionary guidelines around the use of technology.
Priority deadline for UMDCP application – Seniors only
