We fully support equal access to technology for all children in our schools. The safe way to connect to the internet is with cables. All Simcoe County schools - and most of the schools in Canada - already have safe cable access for internet. Since there is abundant evidence that microwave radiation can cause biological changes and health effects, this is a dangerous choice for public schools.
Our Advisory Board is comprised of professionals who are also parents. All policies have a single guiding principle: the healthiest learning environment for our kids.
