But the Chester School District wants to make sure that parents are fully in the loop with obstacles their kids face and issues posed by technology that affects their children educationally and socially.

On Tuesday, March 20, students at Black River Middle School will watching a film entitled “Screenagers.” This documentary digs into the personal lives of families and details the impact that technology has on kids and the family unit. Check it out at  www.screenagersmovie.com.
