A Thayer Central High School class is developing a website to help parents address prominent issues teens deal with today.
Ms. Mary Hagemann’s web page design class is helping to develop the site as their big class project.
The website will address topics such as tobacco and drug use, alcohol, sex, suicide, depression, bad grades, bullying, social media, mental illness and broken families as well as other subject matter.
“Students came up with topics they felt were important,” said Drew Harris, the Thayer Central Schools superintendent.
Other issues were suggested by faculty and parents.
The format of each issue will be written starting with a sample statement written from the perspective of a student experiencing the issue, signs and symptoms, a list of three to six websites on the subject (which will be verified as a valid source by staff members) and resources where parents can go to for more help.
