Did you know that 85% of school-aged children do not meet the pediatric guidelines for screen time? Students in grades seven to twelve are spending up to seven hours daily on screens, which is more than three times the recommended two hours per day. This is linked to poorer cognitive development, including distraction in classrooms and a decline in performance.

Are parents and teachers in your school concerned about this?

As a mother of a son with Video Gaming Addiction, I utilized my clinical experience as a Social Service Worker and Health Practitioner to create a plan that led to his eventual success in recovery.

I now share our lived experience in my book, Seeing Through the Cracks, and speak at schools and mental health forums, bringing awareness and help for other families.

My Talk is an hour in length and includes our story, the fifteen signs to look for, the most recent research and data, strategies for prevention, and resources for help.

Graduating Students Saving Data

Graduating students may have important data stored on the TLDSB network that they will want to download or move to their own data storage.

In order to streamline the process for these students, Technology Services has consolidated the procedures to follow for all data saving in a chart below.  Students moving to schools outside TLDSB can use the same procedures to save information they may wish to take with them.

Graduating Students are responsible to use the following guidelines below by July 31st of their graduating year if they wish to retain any data from TLDSB Technology Services systems.  After that time, data will not be available to them as networks are cleaned and prepared for the coming school year.
