Support your child's future, pass the tech levy

I wanted to share my support for the upcoming vote (Feb. 11 special election) for the Auburn School District technology levy.

I was a member of the Auburn Citizens Technology Ad Hoc Committee this past Fall and was honored to have been given an opportunity to serve the community and support our children's future education.

As a father of an Auburn student and a strong supporter of the importance of technology in education, I want the best for my child as well as the classmates at my child's school and in the district.

Based on my experience, I see the value and importance technology can provide to our children - how it can be a game-changer in their success at becoming productive members of society as they turn into young adults. Our children need the competitive advantage that technology can help provide in supporting and enhancing their educational journey.

While this Levy encompasses technology and associated devices, it is also about providing our teachers and staff the knowledge to support learning through technology, and the infrastructure to make the Auburn School District a world-class place to learn.

It's a holistic approach to using technology as a tool to enhance the learning process – not just about devices, but ensuring the school district staff is trained to use the technology and support it throughout our school district.

I ask the readers to strongly consider voting yes for the upcoming technology levy and vote for providing the children of Auburn the best education we can offer them.
