Resources for Parents

We recently held two parent technology nights in partnership with Bark for Families to address the challenges of supporting our children with navigating their digital presence.  This website includes the recording of the Webinars as well as resources provided during the presentation on research, strategies and tools to help parents.  Wilton Public Schools is providing a series of workshops during this school year to partner with parents to address students’ digital life and how parents can support them.
