Screen Education today delivered 2 seminars --- one for teachers, and one for parents --- at Crestwood High School in Mantua, OH.
Crestwood is implementing a no-phone policy during the 2019/2020 academic year, and it engaged Screen Education to assist it in preparing both stakeholder groups to implement the policy. The purpose of Crestwood's phone ban is to address the distraction caused by students continuously using their phones throughout the day, as well as the toxic social environment this can foster.
Screen Education's goal was to help each group understand at a deeper level the rationale behind the policy, to understand the challenges of implementing such a policy, and to show each stakeholder group how to work with other stakeholders to ensure the policy's success. Screen Education also made suggestions for using the policy as a foundation for creating a comprehensive digital wellness culture at Crestwood.
Screen Education is to return next week to speak to Crestwood students.
