Policy 6321 - Internet Usage

​​​​​​​A major goal of the district is to promote educational excellence by facilitating resource sharing, innovation, and communications by providing Internet access to students, teachers and administrators in the district. Technology, used as an educational tool, can enhance student learning and expand the scope of instruction in many innovative ways.

Along with access to resources through Internet comes the availability of material that may not be considered to be of educational value in a school setting. While precautions will be made to limit use to only those materials that are appropriate, the ultimate responsibility is that of the user.

The use of the district's Internet connection is a privilege, not a right. Inappropriate use is subject to serious discipline and/or financial consequences, including, in the worst case, criminal legal action.

Before being given access to an Internet account and a password, each student and employee will receive instructions regarding the appropriate use directives, learn about proper use of the Network, and be provided information regarding Internet etiquette.

All schools and administrative units where Internet accounts are available will maintain an active file of users.
