All use of the District’s electronic networks shall: 1) in support of education and/or research, and be in furtherance of the School Board’s stated goal, or 2) for a legitimate school business purpose. Use is a privilege, not a right. Students and staff members have no expectation of privacy in any material that is stored, transmitted, or received via the District’s electronic network or District computers.
It is the responsibility of each student to use electronic technology (computers, the Internet, etc.) in an appropriate manner. Failure to do so can result in the loss of the right to use such technology, as well as, other disciplinary action.
If an elementary or secondary school has reasonable cause to believe that a student has violated a disciplinary rule or policy via their social networking site, they may request or require the student to provide their “password or other related account information”.
A social networking site is defined as an Internet-based service which allows individuals to 1) construct a public or semi-public profile; 2) create a list of other users with whom they share a connection within the system; and 3) view and navigate their list of connections and those made by others within the system (i. e. Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram).
