Internet Use Continued

Students in our schools are routinely provided access to the school district’s electronic network via a system of individual user accounts. To comply with CIPA (Children’s Internet Protection Act) guidelines, the district implements a filtering solution.

With this educational opportunity also comes responsibility. When a student is given an account and password to use on the computer, it is extremely important that the rules, as outlined in district policy and procedures, are followed. Inappropriate use will result in the loss of the privilege to use this educational tool and other disciplinary action, if appropriate.

Although we have established rules regulating the material students may search for, please be aware that there is unacceptable and controversial material on the Internet that students could access. It is not possible at all times for staff members to provide direct supervision of all students during use of the district network system.

If you would like a copy of the district’s Electronic Information System (Networks) Policy/Procedures and/or you have any questions, please contact the school principal.
