Message to Bear Creek Parents about Palm Scanners from D38 Assistant Superintendent

Dear Bear Creek Parents,

Please see a note from our Assistant Superintendent below –

A handful of parents expressed concerns about the Palm Scanners.   Their concerns have resulted in conversations that I believe will have a  positive outcome as we review advancements in technology and decide what is best for Lewis-Palmer Schools and our students.  The School District will be forming a technology and student data committee consisting of parents knowledgeable of technology as well as parents who are interested in the direction the district takes regarding the use of technology for student records.  Their job will be to review student data systems as a part of the process the district goes through in determining what makes sense for our schools.

The palm scanner will be one of the first technologies this group will study.  As a result, we will be holding back on our trial of the scanner at Bear Creek.  Please know that  Katie DuBois and our Food Service  Department followed all procedures the district has in place as they worked through this implementation.  Listening to these parents, and thinking about technologies now available, I see that this new technology requires additional processes.  We will work to put them in place and will not move ahead until this work is completed.

Thank you for your time and to the parents that took the time to call.   We will begin work to put the structure of this committee together shortly and will provide informational updates on our web page.

Cheryl Wangeman

Lewis-Palmer School District #38
