Policy to Use Technology in School

 

The intent of this policy is to ensure that all uses of the school computer network are consistent with the school's mission statement,

Such access serves as a natural extension of the educational lessons learned within the classroom by:

  • Providing access to educational resources and reference materials

  • Reinforcing the specific subject matter taught

  • Requiring the use of critical thinking skills

  • Promoting tolerance for diverse views

  • Teaching socially appropriate forms of civil speech and expression

This policy does not attempt to define all required or prohibited behavior by users, but rather an operating framework for the user to follow. Each user must exercise good judgment and appropriate conduct. For purposes of this policy, the school's “computer network” includes all the schools computers and peripheral equipment (including, but not limited to, telephones and fax machines),  

Guidelines for acceptable use include, but are not limited to, the items listed below. 

Users will:

  • Use appropriate language

  • Avoid offensive or inflammatory dialogue

  • Adhere to copyright rules and assume that any software that they did not create is copyrighted (unless it is labeled “freeware” or “public domain”)

  • Not reveal any personal information (i.e., address, phone number, etc.) for themselves or others

  • Use technology only for legal activities

  • Respect the rights of others to utilize technological equipment by not utilizing it for non-school purposes
