Salem-Keizer Public Schools (SKPS) is proud to partner with the Salem and Keizer Police Departments and Marion County Health & Human Services to bring our community two opportunities to view the nationally recognized documentary, “Screenagers,” on April 11 and 24.

“Screenagers” is a documentary created by Primary Care Physician Delaney Ruston that delves into the struggles facing our children concerning social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. To view the trailer, please click here.

“These events are designed to help us continue an ongoing dialogue with our community,” says SKPS Protection and Prevention Coordinator Debbie Joa. “It’s important that we acknowledge the role that technology plays in the lives of our students and provide families with resources to support safe and healthy use.”
