III I I III CUSD seeks public input on Internet By Bill Cox, CUSO The Cloverdale School District is expanding an effort to spread computer technology into class- rooms. We have a good start and a supportive School Board and staff. The District has received a couple proposals in the past six months for the provision of high- speed Internet services to our four schools and the district of- rice. A few discussions tran- spired with technical representatives of three 'service providers,' and consideration of our schools' hooking into the Internet has become a front- burner issue. The topic was dis- cussed at the December School Board meeting and groundwork was laid for additional investi- gation. Several board members requested a special meeting to experience the Net on-line and broaden their understanding of this resource. Within our schools are some teachers and staff who would make immediate use of the Web, e-mail and/or newsgroups. There are some who currently do. The high school has a new Web site on-line right now (http:// www.chs-library.net) that al- ready offers a wealth of informa- tion about CHS policies, staff, officers, sports, art, writing and events - and it's growing (soon the Board page). Most teachers and staff and all students will inevitably use the Net or its evo- lution in the near future. January 15  board meeting (7 pro, CHS faculty room). The board wants feedback from all persons who have comments and/ or thoughts on this subject. There will be a special 'on-line' board meeting devoted totally to this topic soon after the January 15  regular meeting. At that time the school board could reach a decision to commit to this valu- able resource. If you cannot at- tend either meeting but wish to be heard, please convey your message to the school district before this topic comes to a vote. Bill Cox, CUSD 97 School St. Cloverdale, CA 95425 or bcox@redwood.net Internet connectivity brings with it several necessary consid- erations to our district: its value versus its costs; the challenge to incorporate on-line resources into schoolwork; maintaining an 'acceptable use' policy; and man- aging the hardware and sol- ware that will keep us connected. Each of these topics needs clear discussion and understanding for the School Board to see a well-planned introduction ofln- ternet resources to our class- rooms. The Board solicits comments, questions and concerns on this subject from school staff, stu- dents, parents and residents - pro and con. This topic will be discussed early at the regular III I January is Cloverdale School Board recognition month commitment to public service shown by those who serve as trustees for local school systems. In California, there are more than 5,000 locally elected school board members from over 1,000 K-12 school districts and county offices of education.
