Create your Family Media Plan and set up your school year for success

Children today are immersed in digital resources for personal and educational use. Bloomington students use devices to access educational content, collaborate and connect with peers and more, and we want students and families to be successful when devices are brought into the home.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that parents and caregivers develop a family media plan that takes into account the health, education and entertainment needs of students and their families.

To help families start the discussion at home, we have created resources you can use to set up expectations for technology use in your home during the 2018-19 school year.
