Acceptable Use Agreement for Technology
As part of my schoolwork, my school gives me the use of computers and storage space on the server for my work. My behavior and language should follow the same rules I follow in my class and in my school. To help myself and others, I agree to the following promises:
I will use the computers only to do school work, as explained to me by my teacher and not for any other reason. I will not use a school computer for personal or illegal purposes.
I will use the Internet only in ways the teacher has approved.
I will not give my password to anyone else, and I will not ask for anyone’s password. If I should know someone’s password I will not use it to impersonate them or gain access to their accounts.
I will not put my address, telephone number or any other personal information about myself or anyone else on the computer.
I will not upload, link or embed an image of myself or others to non-secured public sites.
I will not use games or other electronic resources that have objectionable content or that engage me in an inappropriate simulated activity.
I will be polite and considerate when I use the computer. I will not use it to annoy, be mean to, frighten, tease or poke fun at anyone. I will not use swear words or other rude language.
I will not use the computer to bully or threaten anyone, including teachers, school mates or other children.
I will not try to see, send/share or upload anything that says and or shows bad or mean things about anyone’s race, religion or gender.
I will not damage the computer or anyone else’s work.
I will not break copyright rules or take credit for anyone else’s work.
If I have or see a problem I will tell the teacheror a trusted adult.
I will not block or interfere with school or school system communications.
My computer use is not private, my teacher may look at my work to be sure that I am following these rules. If I am not there will be consequences which may include not being able to use the computer.
I know that the conduct that is forbidden in school is also forbidden when I use the computers outside of school if it interferes with other student’s education. If I break the rules there will be consequences in school.
