Discord is a free application and online chat service. While it can be used for personal usage, it is used as communication between students in different clubs. These clubs communicate with each other through customizable chat rooms called, "servers." Without this service, students without devices other than the school issued chromebook are unable to communicate easily with clubs they wish to join or already have joined. Without discord, students could be discouraged from joining clubs.

Discord has many advantages as well. Similar to giving someone your phone number, unless you know someone's unique and specific "tag" (four digit number unique to every individual user), you are unable to message someone, making it safer and more secure than most other similar services. Personally, I have stopped using sms all together and almost exclusively talk through discord. By the same token, many clubs communicate through discord as well. These clubs include, but are not limited to, Pride Club and the High school Esports League.

In conclusion, Discord is an essential service for club communication. Unblocking this website would keep students in touch within clubs and encourage students to join clubs.
