Triton Regional School District Superintendent Brian Forget announced the formation of a technology committee to “rethink our vision for the role technology plays in preparing our students for life beyond our walls.”

With this, he is looking for a parent representative from each of the five district schools, along with teachers from each school as well as student representation.

The focus of the group will be on the use and integration of technology, not the details of device and networking, so parents need not have a background in technology to join the committee.

It is anticipated that the new committee will meet about six times throughout the school year, with the first meeting on Oct. 23 at 6 p.m. at the high school. Those interested in being on the committee are invited to email Forget directly at brian.forget@tritonschools.org.
