I disagree with you on BYOT (Bring Your Own Technology). While some kids may abuse it, technology is where we are, and we have to not only live with it, but we have to learn ways to teach kids to use it with courtesy. If kids are abusing it, texting in class or taking pictures of tests or whatever else they shouldn't be doing, then those kids need to be disciplined and lose their privilege for awhile. Does it make things more difficult on teachers, and force them to have to learn new methods? Yep, it does. Time marches on, and this is where we need to be now, in order to prepare our kids for the future.
BTW, what past committees didn't have Lewisville residents? I'm told that there was a "Farmer Focus" committee at some point, which was partly responsible for encouraging the three-campus decision. I don't think I know anyone on the committee, but I'd be astonished if there weren't some Lewisville folks on it.
