SPS is a state index that measures how well schools are meeting those standards set forth by the state to be a proficient school. PHS improved from a C school in 2013-20114 with a SPS of 79.2 to our current B status with a SPS of 85.4.

  • Online Bullying: Beware of These Apps

    Posted by Susan Dupre at 2/10/2016 6:00:00 AM

    While society has reaped huge benefits from the Internet, the online world is also infamous as a vehicle through which people can be cruel to others. All online etiquette guidelines include recommendations that would prevent this behavior, but the perceived anonymity of a virtual environment often causes people to believe they can say or do anything they want with no personal consequences. 

    A recent article highlighted smartphone and tablet apps that experts agree can prove harmful for children and teens. While many of these apps require users to be at least 13 years of age, parents may be unaware of exactly what happens within the app after a profile is created.

    Gaggle, the vendor who provides email monitoring for St. Mary Parish, has provided a list of apps that parents should consider deleting from a child's phone or device. Here are some related to bullying:

    • Afterschool: The Apple App Store listing reads, "Funny Anonymous School News for Confessions and Compliments." However, students use the app to spread rumors about other students, and the app allows sexual/graphic images.
       
    • Yik Yak: Postings here are often mean, vicious, and demeaning. Because postings are anonymous, there is no easy way to trace the author and therefore no consequences for saying something hurtful. Even more dangerous is the feature that limits viewing to those who are geographically close to the poster. 

    • Whisper: Users are supposed to be 17 years of age or older, but nothing stops a child from creating a profile with an incorrect birthday. The app is supposed to give users a place for anonymous "confessional" postings, but it is often used to bully or intimidate.

    Remember that new apps pop up daily, and kids will find out about these apps long before parents are aware of the danger. It's important that parents explain to their children why these apps could be harmful and make the decision to delete them together.
