One FYI if your PTA or other non-profit needs help with digitizing records - there's a Data for Communities Program thru Captricity. They have an on-going grant program to help organizations and projects with up to 10,000 pages of digitization. One of their areas of focus is K-12 education.
And in the "Dumb, Dumb, Dumb" category of school punishments, this story came out this week. about a teenaged girl in the Boston area who got a call from a friend from a party who was too drunk to drive and needed a ride home. From CBS Boston:
Two weeks ago, Erin received a call from a friend at a party who was
too drunk to drive. Erin drove to Boxford after work to pick up her
friend. Moments after she arrived, the cops arrived too and busted
several kids for underage possession of alcohol.
A North Andover
honor student, Erin was cleared by police, who agreed she had not been
drinking and was not in possession of alcohol. But Andover High told
Erin she was in violation of the district’s zero tolerance policy
against alcohol and drug use. In the middle of her senior year, Erin was
demoted from captain of the volleyball team and told she would be
suspended from playing for five games.
This school (and district) is sending the WRONG message about doing the right thing.
What's on your mind?
