SB Q4: 20 Questions for Langley School Board candidates

 

Candy Ashdown (City) – No, this is recognized at the District level and they are doing some great work to bridge the gap between schools. However, there is still much more that needs to be done to ensure our schools have equal opportunities to technology.

Pamala-Rose Combs (Township) – Not right now, but SD35 is working to change that.

 Megan Dykeman (Township) – No. We have developed technology plan and have provided funding for it, it is not completely implemented but will be soon. This plan is one intended to create equality in our district. 

Kristine Ketter (Township) – No. I am glad to see that the Langley District is moving forward with their technology plan. I believe that, as this plan unfolds, we will see improved equity in schools with regard to technology.

Suzanne Perreault (Township) – Not yet. This is currently in progress and well on its way through the Technology Plan. The District Technology Plan has been well laid out through the Tec Planning Committee and has been progressing, overall, in a timely manner. The District Parent Advisory Council has also been working with Ubuntu Project and district families to assist with supporting the Technology Plan. 

Rod Ross (Township) – No. It is not a perfect world and we are working to bring about “equity” in technology. Schools are all getting new projectors and sound systems so we have equity with the teacher side of things. On the student experience side…we have some challenges there but the best money has been invested in the teacher side and I expect a benefit on the student learning side.
