I have asked for the Internet Filtering vote to be postponed to the Jun 4th Board meeting. Anyone wishing to delegate must email GortmakerG@hdsb.ca before noon Tue May 27th to hold a place to delegate. Written materials must be emailed to GortmakerG@hdsb.ca by noon Thu May 29th. Please see Delegating Trustees for a complete explanation of the rules. If you need any help with your delegation, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
THANK YOU very much to everyone for providing HDSB trustees with 43 pages of Internet Filtering Feedback. Your responses contain many diverse, well thought out opinions. I really appreciate your engagement. Background information on the issue of filtering at Halton schools can be found here: Internet Filter – yes or no?
Responses are divided into four categories. Unfortunately, although many of our staff are also parents of our students, they could not click off more than one category:
- staff member
- other (those who did not identify their category)
Trustees will read all the input and reflect upon it. We welcome your opinion right up until this issue returns to the Board table for a vote on Jun 4th. Please feel free to comment on this blog, or if you prefer to be anonymous, call or email me or your Trustee.
