Cheshire Schools Suspending Controversial Online Program

Cheshire schools plan to suspend a controversial program that was launched earlier this year. 

Some parents said the learning tool Summit contained inappropriate material, while others said the program had a lot to offer students. 

In the spring, students received Google Chrome books installed with an online learning program called Summit.

"There were issues with content in the platform and substantial degree of misunderstanding and misinformation within the community," a letter to parents reads. 

Parents against the program said the information in the program was not properly vetted and sexually provocative material was found. 

The program will be suspended on Friday, giving students an opportunity to finish their work and staffers time to transition.
