Bloomington, Ill. – March 5, 2019– Keeping students safe is a top priority for K-12 district leaders. Yet so is affording students greater opportunities to use technology in the classroom. It goes without saying that technology can transform learning and create incredible opportunities, but without strong accountability, it can open up pathways for students to disrupt safe learning environments. So, how can districts successfully walk the tightrope of incorporating technology while keeping student safety and a stretched budget in mind?

On Tuesday, March 12at noon EST, guest speakers Kecia Ray, Ed. D. and Susan Gentz will present an informative, free webinar on “Securing Title IV Funds to Safeguard Schools.” The webinar –– hosted by Gaggle –– will focus on where districts can find funds, including Title IV, for purchasing student safety technologies that help ensure the welfare of students in and out of the classroom.
