Screenagers Next Chapter


  • teens using screens In recent years, the Ann Arbor Public Schools has provided community viewings of Screenagers: Growing Up in the Digital Age. With funding provided by the Miles Jeffrey Roberts Foundation, and with support from the Washtenaw ISD and Washtenaw County Community Mental Health, the AAPS is providing all families with the opportunity to view Screenagers Next Chapter: Uncovering Skills for Stress Resilience.

    Given our continued reliance on devices and increased screen time, especially due to our current learning models, Screenagers Next Chapter will provide students and families with important, timely information. For the health and safety of our community, we are providing students and families the opportunity to view Screenagers Next Chapter in their homes. Please register for the event HERE.

    Due to the content of the documentary, it is intended for students in grades 6-12. You may also register to view the original Screenagers documentary which may be more suited for younger children. Please visit the movie trailers and see additional resources to support student and adult wellness with screen time.

    After completing registration, you will gain on-demand access to the documentary between November 20 and January 10. The documentary has both English and Spanish subtitles.

    Then, the AAPS invites you to attend a Facebook Live event on Tuesday, January 12, 2021, at 7:00 PM. This event will feature mental health professionals and educators from across the county speak to the documentary and the local supports and resources for students and families. Complete details about this event will be shared when we return from winter break, but mark your calendar now!
