What is BCPS approach to ensuring a healthy balance for students?

This report and recommendations were created by the Baltimore County School Health Council, which is comprised of physicians, occupational and physical therapists, and psychologists. Get the Baltimore County School Health Council report and recommendations here.

In Baltimore County Public Schools we are committed to teaching our students to approach technology use in a balanced way. We believe in empowering and informing students to set their own limits and practice personal responsibility. A healthy media diet balances three things: what kids do, how much time they spend doing it, and whether their content choices are age-appropriate. The poster below is displayed in every teaching area in our schools and provides text and visual reminders of the need for balance in computing.

What students and parents can do at home?
