The end is nigh indeed for the 2015-16 school year, but we’re not done yet. Your School Council remains hard at work planning for the new year and tidying up unfinished business.
Parent Tech Subcommittee: The Earl Haig School Council is hoping to create a Technology Sub-Committee responsible for working with the administration and teacher representatives of Earl Haig to create a technology plan that supports the use of technology in an organic manner within the classroom.
Our digital learners need further access to all forms of technology in order to reinforce their learning as they become digitally literate. How can our School Council support current efforts and access to TDSB technologies?
In collaboration with the teachers we would like to further enrich and support our children’s classroom experiences through well supplemented access to technology. What can we do as parents and caregivers to ensure access to technology for our children in order to prepare them for the future?
Proposal: We are looking for 5 – 6 parent volunteers who have a passion for technology and can commit to possibly meeting once a month or once every 6 weeks.
The committee would investigate the resources available within the TDSB and advocate to strengthen these resources to Earl Haig community and work with the Administration and a possible teacher representative to support the enhancement of technology in any way we can. The purpose of the sub-committee would not be on fundraising – any fundraising initiatives would be handed over the fundraising committee of the School Council.
Parents interested in being a part of the committee, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
