School Technology Policy

Cell Phones

Many cell phones have the ability to do multiple tasks.  If the device is able to support the learning that is taking place in the classroom and the teacher has given permission, then the device may be used in class.  If the device is not used properly, we may require the student to place it in their back pack or leave it at home.  The school will not be held responsible for any lost or damaged items.

Electronics / Other Valuables

Electronic devices and/or valuable items are not to be brought to school.  These items will be confiscated to be picked up and taken home at the end of the school day.  Students are also reminded not to bring large amounts of money to school.  These items could be broken, stolen or misplaced and present an issue around confidentiality and safety when used to make calls, take photos, or send messages without adequate supervision.  These rules apply on all school trips as well.  Use of electronic games on the buses, especially when rides are very long, is up to the driver and this equipment must be kept in backpacks.  The school or bus company is not liable if these items are lost, stolen, broken or misplaced.  Bringing expensive items to school is a risk.

Internet Use

Students who access the internet on school property are required to be supervised and have the consent of their teacher.  All use of internet must be for school/curriculum related projects and purposes.  All misuse of the computers and internet privileges will result in suspension of computer access.
