Montgomery County Public Schools REFUSES to Support legislation that would develop Safety Guidelines for Digital Devices in Schools!

This Letter from Montgomery County Public Schools states that the County  REFUSES to Support legislation that would develop Safety Guidelines for Digital Devices in Schools!   Please share this far and wide and contact your Board of Education members and  tell them this is unacceptable. 


HB1110:  "Public Schools - Health and Safety Guidelines and Procedures - Digital Devices" directs the Maryland State Department of Education, consulting with the Maryland Department of Health to convene a group of medical experts and stakeholders to develop health and safety guidelines for the schools' technology equipment. 

Montgomery County School takes a "no position" position???
TAKE ACTION NOW
Contact the Montgomery County BOE and the press and demand children's safety be put first! before the needs of the devices. 

There is no reason we cannot integrate digital devices into schools in a safe way. This statement by the county is outrageous.
