  • Technology Resources Information

    Your child has an opportunity to be given access to the District’s technology resources, meaning electronic communication systems and electronic equipment. Inappropriate use of the District’s technology resources may result in suspension or revocation of the privilege to use these educational tools, as well as other disciplinary or legal action, in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct and applicable laws. As a user of the District’s technology resources,
    your student will be able to access:

    • An unlimited number of databases, libraries, and resources, including Google for Education and filtered YouTube. 

    • The Internet, Intranet, and other electronic information systems/networks, which can be used to communicate with schools, colleges, organizations, and individuals around the world. Shared electronic equipment, which may have stored temporary Internet and electronic files of other users.

    Please note that the Internet is a network of many types of communication and information networks. It is possible your child may run across areas of adult content and some material you might find objectionable. While the District will use filtering technology to restrict access to such material, it is not possible to absolutely prevent such access. It will be the responsibility of the student to follow the rules for appropriate use. If a District technology device is issued, additional materials addressing the proper use, care, and return of these devices will be provided by the campus from which the device is issued.
