Annville-Cleona Secondary School will host a free SAFETiNET conference for parents on Saturday, March 11, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Organizers say that it’s the region’s first single-day conference to be focused on empowering parents and caretakers to help children safely and responsibly navigate technology. The conference is open to all parents, regardless of district.

“Children are introduced to various forms of technology throughout childhood,” explained organizers in a press release about the event. “Knowing when and how to provide access is a daunting task. Furthermore, once children have access, what are the consequences (positive and negative) of having access? What options exist to help parents and caretakers monitor and limit device access?”

The conference will feature a keynote address at 9:15 a.m. by Jamie Willis, as well as breakout sessions on monitoring and securing devices and closing remarks.

Registration can be done online, and a free t-shirt is available to the first 250 people who register. A complimentary lunch will also be provided to all attendees.
