The broadcast is approved and backed by the Pioneer RESA Board of Control, which consists of our member system superintendents. The GaDOE has also stated that the broadcast can serve as a Title 1 Parent Event. The event will be led by Brian Buffington (GBI Cyber Safety Certified), in partnership with WTVN, the White County High Broadcast Team. English and Spanish versions will be broadcasted and saved for later viewing. We intentionally scheduled the broadcast to start at 9PM to better meet the needs of parents. Parents will be able to submit questions throughout the broadcast. The event is free and there will be giveaways provided by our partners in education. 

Topics Covered: Social Media, Cyber Bullying, Digital Footprints, Sexting, Privacy & Security, Helpful Tips & Tricks

Title 1 Documentation

Viewers will be encouraged to complete a short survey during the broadcast. The survey will allow schools to have a record of local viewership. Pioneer RESA will share the viewership data with local school systems following the event. This broadcast can serve as a Title 1 Parent Event, per GADOE. 

Please see the flyer link above, mark your calendars and spread the word. This event will be public and can be accessed throughout Georgia and beyond.
