A Student MUST BE PREPARED to be held accountable for his/her actions and for the loss of privileges if the rules listed on the reverse side of this form are violated.
The district reserves the right to monitor use of the district’s systems for improper use without advance notice or consent. Students shall be informed that computer files and electronic communications, including email, are not private and may be accessed by the district for the purpose of ensuring proper use.
Whenever a student is found to have violated Board policy, administrative regulation, or the district’s Acceptable Use Agreement, the Superintendent/Principal or designee may cancel or limit a student’s user privileges or increase supervision of the student’s use of the district’s technological resources, as appropriate. Inappropriate use also may result in disciplinary action and/or legal action in accordance with law and Board policy.
Use of the District’s computer system is a privilege, not a right. Network administrators may review communications to maintain
system integrity and insure that students are using the system responsibly. Anyone can read what you write. Consequences for
violating the behavior standards outlined above include:
loss of technology privileges from 1 month to 1 year, depending on the severity
repayment of any damages caused to equipment.
Staff shall provide age-appropriate instruction regarding safe and appropriate behavior on social networking sites, chat rooms, and other Internet services. Such instruction shall include, but not limited to, the dangers of posting personal information online, misrepresentation by online predators, how to report inappropriate or offensive content or threats, behaviors that constitute
cyberbullying, and how to respond when subjected to cyberbullying.
Student use of district computers to access social networking sites is prohibited.
In order to use the Internet, students and parents must sign the agreement to indicate understanding of the conditions of responsibility
and return this form to their child’s teacher.
PARENT OR GUARDIAN
District computers with Internet access have a technology protection measure that blocks or filters Internet access to visual depictions that are obscene, child pornography, or harmful to minors and that the operation or such measures is enforced.
As the parent or guardian of this student, I have read this contract and understand that it is designated for educational purposes. I
understand that it is impossible for the school to restrict access to all controversial materials, and I will not hold the school responsible
for materials acquired on the Internet. I also agree to report any misuse of the information system to the school. Misuse can come in many forms, but can be viewed as any messages sent or received that indicate or suggests pornography, unethical or illegal solicitation, racism, sexism, inappropriate language, and other issues described in this document.
I understand that my child is responsible for his or her behavior, and agree to the consequences set up by Knights Ferry School.
