Survey about Technology Use

Tipton Community School Corporation is participating in a survey that gives our stakeholders (staff, students, parents, and community members) an opportunity to share their viewpoints about key educational issues, particularly concerning digital learning and the use of technology to support schools. Each year, findings are summarized and shared with national and state policymakers. Tipton schools will be able to access our local data online.  The survey is available from now until January 13.  The results will be available in February of 2017.

TCSC is looking forward to the response of our community on this topic.  Parents and community members of Tipton are encouraged to complete the survey by going to http://www.speakup4schools.org/speakup2016/.

WeatherBug's Lightning Alert System at Tipton

Tipton Community School Corporation is a WeatherBug School. The WeatherBug Program collects weather data from our local site. This information is available to anyone in the community. Individual only need to download the program on their computer or app on their smartphone to receive weather information directly from Tipton. (Google WeatherBug)

TCSC included the Lightning Alert System in the project. The outdoor alerting system is a valuable community tool in alerting not only school patrons, but also patrons of the city park, the baseball diamonds, and fairground participants when lightning is in the immediate area. This system will sound a horn when lightning is detected eight miles away. This is a warning that people outside should seek shelter. (Click on the Blog's title to see full article including a map showing the range of the Lightning Alert System.)

Approximate range of the Lightning Alert Horns at TCSC.
When lightning is within 8 miles of the school, a fifteen (15) second alarm will sound. When lightning has cease to exist within this range for at least thirty (30) minutes, an all-clear signal will be given which is a series of three (3) short alarms of (5) seconds in duration each. Lightning alerts will also be received through individuals’ downloaded computer and phone applications.

The alarms will be activated between the hours of 6:00 am through 10:00 pm. This will prevent the alarms being sounded through the night or early morning hours.

Social Media Safety Info for Parents

In the corporation’s last newsletter, a web site was shared on how parents can keep their children safe when using electronic devices. Netsmartz Workshop (http://www.netsmartz.org/Parents ) provides tips for parents when children use cell phones, email, gaming, social networking and others. In addition, WLFI (Channel 18, Lafayette) recently aired a segment “Decoding digital teens: How to crack the codes.” (http://wlfi.com/2016/02/04/decoding-digital-teens-how-to-crack-the-codes/ ).  This gives parents insight on what the different abbreviations and codes mean.  CNN also recently aired a piece that may be helpful to parents on Social Media Red Flags (http://www.cnn.com/2016/01/25/health/social-media-red-flags-for-parents/).

Children are more often approached by predators when using cell phones. Parents are encouraged to be vigilant and be aware of what their children are doing and with whom on their devices. They should report any suspicious activity to the proper authorities. Hopefully, it will never happen. But watching the news, we all know that it can happen.
