CV Board To Study Role Of Technology

The role of technology in education is on the agenda at Monday’s Central Valley school board meeting.

Board members will hear and discuss a report on the strategic plan for technology in CV schools.

Public meetings on the topic will be held later this spring.

Mary Anderson, a Central Valley parent, an educator and a member of the technology committee, said her group emphasizes that technology is only a tool for education. “It’s not a substitute,” she said. The group also tried to include material in the report that could give the public a sense of how education will change with more technology.

This topic comes up just as the school board has changed the format of its meetings. Members will set aside an hour, from 8 to 9 p.m., for discussion of a substantive topic at each regular meeting.

Under the board’s current format, such discussion took place much later in the evening. Usually by that time, any members of the public in attendance at the meeting had left, said district spokesman Skip Bonuccelli.
