Bay Village Schools partners with BVPD for social media webinar
Bay Village Schools invites community members to attend a virtual Town Hall on “Excesses in Social Media” on Wednesday, Jan. 20, 6:30-7:30 p.m., via Zoom. The webinar event is hosted by Bay Village City School District in partnership with Bay Village Police Department.
The event is geared toward parents and guardians of students in grades 5-12, and the panelists will help families by discussing the emotional, technical and legal ramifications of social media. Panelists will share ways to communicate with students about social media regarding potential risks and how to establish good online rules.
Panelists include Bay Village Schools psychologist Richard Bogielski; district Technology Coordinator Brian Reynolds; district School Resource Officer Ben Kitchen and Det. Jameison Pochatek of Bay Village Police Department. The webinar will be moderated by Martha Patton, Bay Village Schools’ assistant superintendent for special services.
Town Hall guests can submit their questions when they pre-register at bit.ly/Jan20TownHall. Registered attendees will receive a special Zoom link to view the event.
This event is the fourth virtual Town Hall webinar the district has offered to families this school year through its Rocket Family Learning Series. Topics have ranged from responding to COVID-19 to anxiety. The district will record this event and release it via social media for those unable to attend.
