Middletown Christian School has taken steps to impart students on appropriate network use, proper network etiquette, and to restrict access to inappropriate resources or information on the Iternet.
The primary responsibility for access will rest with the student. Adherence to the following policy is necessary for continued access to the school's technological resources:
1) The students will only use computers and the internet for educational purposes approved by the teacher.
2) Possession of personal media equipment or software is prohibited on the school premises (Exception only when the teacher and parents have made a special arrangement ahead of time
3) Respect and protect the intellectual property of others.
a) Not infringe copyrights (no making illegal copies of music, games, or movies!)
b) Not plagiarize.
4) Respect and practice the principles of community/school.
a) Communicate only in ways that are kind and respectful.
b) Report threatening or discomforting materials to a teacher.
Not intentionally access, transmit, copy, or create material that violates the school's code
of conduct (such as messages that are pornographic, threatening, slander, rude,
discriminatory, or meant to harass
d) Not use the resources to further other acts that are criminal or violate the school's code of conduct.
e) Not send spam, chain letters, or other mass unsolicited mailings.
f) Not use school and/or personal computers laptops, PDAs, cell phones, or related devices
to bully, treat, or harass electronically.
5) The student understands that it is a privilege to use the internet. Any violation of the Computer and Internet Usage Policy may result in privileges being revoked, and appropriate school discipline being taken.
I have read and understand the Computer and Internet Usage Policy of Middletown Christian School and understand that the violation of this policy may result in disciplinary action, including the loss of privileges to use the school's information technology resources.
I understand that administrators/teachers reserve the right to examine, use, and disclose any data found on the school's information networks to further the health, safety, discipline, or security of any student or other person, or to protect property. They may also use this information in disciplinary actions and will furnish evidence of crime to law enforcement.
