Academy District 20 offers Parent Academy topics free to the public throughout the fall and spring semesters. Internet Safety, Suicide Prevention, and New Parent Orientation are among the courses.
The average child spends 6.5 hours a day looking at screens - and this does NOT include time doing schoolwork. How much time is your child spending online? And how is it affecting his/her brain?
Academy District 20 will host a screening of the award-winning documentary Screenagers. Screenagers tackles mental health concerns related to social media, video game and internet addiction from the perspective of a parent (filmmaker) and her teenage daughter.
Following the screening of this one-hour documentary, Dr. Scott Poland and Mr. Richard Lieberman will discuss the topics addressed in Screenagers and take questions. Dr. Poland and Mr. Lieberman are nationally recognized psychologists who specialize in suicide prevention and postvention. They have worked with parents and staff in Academy 20 with a focus on how to help students manage the stresses and challenges in their lives.
Space for this event is limited to the first 500 participants.
