    Concerns about protecting students’ privacy online are not new, but they are expanding to incorporate not just what’s being collected, but how that information is being used and by whom. Laws exist at both federal and state levels that include mandates for educators, but many school administrators are not aware of recent changes that may impact them. Attend this free, 30-minute webinar to raise your awareness about laws and practices that individual schools and school districts need to explore further.    This webinar is presented in collaboration with TICAL.

    When: July 24, 2017 at 12 PM Pacific Daylight Time

    Speaker: Susan Brooks-Young.  A former school administrator, Susan Brooks-Young is a prolific author, educational technology consultant, and member of the TICAL leadership cadre.

    President Trump’s FY18 budget was officially released yesterday. Unfortunately, the funding program details are consistent with what we’ve been hearing generally about the drastic cuts to education programs.

    Despite all the rhetoric about the importance of teachers to student achievement, ESSA Title II would have its $2.1 billion for professional development and class size reduction funding completely eliminated in FY18. This comes on the heels of a nearly $300 million cut to the program in the final FY17 budget that was enacted in April. Also targeted for elimination is the $1.1 billion for the 21st Century Learning Centers (after-school programs) and all the funding ($400 million) for the new Title IV well-rounded education program that supports academic subjects, health and safety, and education technology.
