Responsible Use and Digital Citizenship

The use of a student device and district technologies is a privilege. Students are responsible for their actions on the network. Students should assume that none of their data is private or confidential. Any communication or data may be reviewed by district or school administration periodically. 

Inappropriate Content on a Device

Inappropriate content is not allowed on the district device. Inappropriate content includes, but is not limited to, files such as pictures, documents, presentations, music, videos, and apps that contain the presence of weapons, pornographic materials, inappropriate language or lyrics, tobacco, alcohol, drug, or gang related symbols or pictures.

Classroom Charging

In addition, there will be a few open area charging stations, and some classrooms have access to electrical outlets for students to charge.

Students in grades K-4 will keep their devices at school in a locking cabinet to be charged each night. The battery should last the entire school day.
