About The Academy

Conceived in early 2017, the Discovery Elementary School Parent Media Academy provides research-based resources, including online tools and parenting strategies, to assist our families provide their children with healthy, appropriate ways of relating to and using digital technology. Pairing on-demand online resources with scheduled face-to-face events, the Academy is a collaboration between Discovery Elementary School and the Discovery Elementary School Parent-Teacher Association, with a desire to identify current, accurate resources to help our families mediate digital technology issues at home.

APS has mirrored some of these resources on their own Parent Resources page, which is also available to you.
