Parent Technology Information  Thank you to those who attended our Protect Young Eyes Information Night a couple of weeks ago!  Be sure to check out the many resources that are available! 
Also, for the next few weeks we will post some very valuable resources in the News and Notes to  help as many families as possible use technology well.

BARK - Does your child use iMessage, YouTube, Instagram and Snapchat? Bark Parental Controls can help identify inappropriate bullying and sexualized comments in both apps, keeping parents informed. There are few options for monitoring Snapchat and Instagram. BARK is the ONLY social media monitoring solution we recommend at Protect Young Eyes. 
"My kid is a good kid and wouldn't do that." This is a statement that is often used by well-intentioned, Christian parents when they hear statistics about porn, predators, sexting, and other digital issues. The truth is, the Internet is an equal opportunity destroyer. It preys on all kids in some way  the four myths parents believe It includes a heartbreaking story that could represent any good, Christian family.

FACTS Tuition Assistance for 2019-2020  ACS participates in FACTS, a grant application program for our school. Completion of the FACTS application is a requirement for next year's enrollment if you are expecting a remaining balance at the end of the school year or you will be requesting tuition assistance. Families who wish to apply for tuition assistance will need to use the FACTS application format online at https://online.factsmgt.com/signin/3Z45H  The application information will be easily accessible data from your 2018 tax return, along with financial accounts, and will require that copies of confirming tax documents be sent to the FACTS center.  The FACTS organization will analyze the information of each applicant. They will provide our school with recommended grant amounts based on need and financial status. Parents who have children in more than one of the participating schools need only to fill out the application one time-the information will be available to other Christian schools where their children attend. Applications must be submitted by March 31, 2019. The application fee will be paid by the participating schools.
