“Select Technical Advisory Committee” to Host Community Forums

Thompson School District’s “Select Technical Advisory Committee” (STAC) has announced that it will host a series of community forums to discuss the world of technology within the district and provide the community with valuable information that will assist students and families. The forums will be held at the following dates and times:

January 14 – Loveland High School (920 W. 29th St.) – 6:00 P.M.
February 16 – Thompson Valley High School (1669 Eagle Dr.) – 6:00 P.M.
March 15 – Mountain View High School (3500 Mountain Lion Dr.) – 6:00 P.M.

In addition to a keynote address discussing technical improvements that have been made to the district’s infrastructure and information on the topic of social media safety, the forums will include group discussion around techniques for keeping students safe and what to look for on different mobile devices.

“The STAC created these forums to help educate parents, students, teachers and staff about changes to technology and connectivity at the schools and to further serve the community by providing informative presentations and open discussions on computer safety and security,” said committee member Jeff Lorenzen. “Through the forums, attendees will feel more empowered and confident about their use of computers and Internet-enabled devices.”

The Select Technical Advisory Committee is a nine-member team that consists of parents, local business owners, community members and district staff members. The committee was formed to serve as an advisory resource for technology use within the district.

For more information on the committee or the upcoming community forums, please contact Michael Hausmann, Thompson School District Public Information Officer, at 613-5011 or at michael.hausmann@thompsonschools.org.
