Parent Feedback Requested
(March 10, 2014)
Dear 6th-8th Grade Parents,
March marks about 75% of the 2013-2014 school year behind us. This school year has seen some significant changes with the introduction of Chromebook computers to our learning environment.
As we plan for the fall, we are gathering feedback from our parents, students, and staff. As a parent, your feedback is requested on this year’s 1:1 implementation.
Please visit the link below by Friday, March 14, to complete a brief survey.
If you would like to request a paper copy of the survey, please contact the Middle School office at 419-895-1700.
Thanks for your input in this process!
Director of Instructional Technology
(Jan. 31, 2014) - 6-8th Grade Families: Earlier this month we sent a letter home with students regarding a situation with the filtering tools for our Chromebooks. To date, our 3rd-party service provider has been unable to resolve the issue and the filtering tool is inoperable for off-campus use.
Rather than continue to hold the Chromebooks on-campus, we will begin sending these devices home again on Monday, February 10, with students who were previously permitted to take the devices home. However, these devices will not be filtered when used off-campus at this time.
As Mr. Lemon noted in parent orientation meetings at the beginning of the year, a child’s family is his or her best filtering tool and software filters should be considered as being one tool in a family’s online safety toolkit. Your family’s active engagement in online safety habits will ensure that your child remains safe online, even without the added assistance of a filter.

We understand that some families may not wish to have the computers at home until this is resolved and filtering can be restored. If you wish to temporarily opt-out of having your child bring home a Chromebook, please complete this online form, http://goo.gl/W1VBVY, or call the school office at 419-895-1700.
We are continuing to push to ensure that this problem is fixed as soon as possible and will make further information available at that time. Thank you for your continued patience.
