As indicated by the results of most recent administrations of the Comprehensive School Climate Inventory (CSCI), inappropriate use of social media is one of the greatest factors negatively affecting the social emotional wellbeing of our students today. We recognize that time is a valuable commodity, but hope that all parents are able to attend and that the information provided to both students and parents serves as an opportunity to increase awareness and foster conversation about appropriate use of social media, positive digital citizenship, and the dangers of cyber-bullying.
