Appropriate Computer Use 1.Classroom computers are to be used for learning purposes only. They are not toys for entertainment. 2.Computer usage is a privilege, not a right. Inappropriate use can lead to loss of the privilege. 3.Students must be supervised at all times when using the school's computers. 4.Researching school-related topics is the only appropriate use for the Web. 5. Open surfing and unsupervised searching on the Internet are strictly prohibited. 6.Students are not allowed to use other students’ passwords to obtain access to someone else’s files.Students are not allowed to change, copy, delete, read or otherwise access files that are not their own. 7.Students work should be their own and they should not copy and or plagiarize any work and pass it off as their own. Students found plagiarizing will receive a zero for a grade. 8. When using the Internet, stay on recommended sites. If in doubt, ask before clicking. Get help from the teacher immediately if you get on the wrong site. I request that each of my students and their parents/guardians read and sign a statement indicating their understanding of the above policy guidelines. In this way I gain their permission and they gain my assurance of relevant, safe and appropriate use of technology in our classroom.
