Electronics at DISD: It was not so long ago that students’ personal smart phones and other computerized devices were not welcome at school. In many school districts, they still aren’t, but the Dayton ISD is beginning its second full year of BYOD or Bring Your Own Device under district guidelines. Amy Ripkowski is the instructional technology coordinator for DISD. She said incorporating those student-owned electronic devices into the classroom was a success last year. Ms. Ripkowski said it allows students to work with familiar technology to enhance the learning process.

Medicare Part B: Kim Richard of the Beaumont Social Security office said some Medicare beneficiaries will be receiving notice by mail that they may be eligible for lower Medicare Part B premiums through a subsidy program. The letter will ask you to call 1-800-medicare. Ms. Richard said that is the correct toll-free number for Medicare information.
