SLCS Student Pledge for Devices
The Board of Education considers computers to be a valuable tool for education, and encourages the use of computer-related technology in district classrooms. Computer use will significantly enhance educational experiences and provide statewide, national and global communications opportunities for students and staff.
Each year students will be granted an account for one academic year to use the school district’s computer network. Users of the district’s computer equipment shall have no expectation of privacy. The district reserves the right to access all files and monitor all uses of the district’s computer technology equipment at its own discretion in order to ensure the equipment is not being used inappropriately.
The district prohibits the use of any computer hardware/software in any inappropriate, fraudulent or destructive manner, including, but not limited to:
- Sending out unauthorized messages
- Entering a code-protected file
- Altering a software program
- Vandalizing hardware or software components
- Copyright infringement
Acceptable Use Agreements
An acceptable use agreement for student use of the district’s computer network is sent home. It describes the student’s access to the network and expectations for acceptable use. Parents are expected to review this agreement with their child. Parents and students are required to sign the agreement to abide by district policy and regulation in the use of the district’s computers. These agreements are kept on file in the office. Failure to abide by these regulations may result in disciplinary action up to and including suspension from school and/or revocation of system access and related privileges.
