Parent Technology Resources

  • Technology is an important part of our world and an important part of our schools. Westonka Public Schools believe technology has the power to transform education by increasing student learning and student engagement.

    Digital citizenship, responsibly using the internet, is a critical part of what we will constantly be communicating to all students. We would like have a common voice with you as a parents. We have adopted 6 simple statements: Protect yourself, Protect others, Respect yourself, Respect others, Respect intellectual property, and Protect intellectual property.

    We recommend a fantastic website to parents called Common Sense Media. The content is updated daily, and they have wonderful reviews and articles on current media topics.
