Parents connect with Hector Garcia MS

December 17, 2013

Parents at Hector Garcia MS were able to participate in the school’s first Parent Tech Night to hear about the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Programs.

With stretched resources and not enough connectable devices on hand, Hector Garcia MS teachers occasionally ask students to bring their own device to school for specific projects.

“Our technology committee decided we should invite parents to hear why we encourage students to bring their own devices from home, and what software, applications, and websites are being used in the classrooms,” said Lucy Podmore, Campus Librarian.

“The parents were appreciative of the information and many commented that it opened their eyes to all the resources available for students,” she said.
