VANDALIA — The following is important information for parents of students in the Vandalia-Butler City Schools:

Social Media Presentation

The school district has booked Stephen Smith, A Wired Family LLC., to present a program on social media for parents in our District. The presentation will be Monday, Apr. 16 starting at 6 p.m. in our Butler PAT. There will be four main topics addressed during the program:

  • How we have become a distracted society
  • What can happen when inappropriate images are sent using technology
  • How privacy does not exist (he will be providing examples of how easy it is to gain access to content)
  • How social media can impact mental health

Mr. Smith has also written a book that he will be using as part of his presentation. It is titled Social Media: Your Child’s Digital Tattoo. If interested, the book can found on Amazon
