Family Tech Agreement

ACCEPTABLE USE OF TECHNOLOGY AGREEMENT

 

  • Personal Responsibility and Safety-I know that school computers and internet communication tools must be used properly and with respect.

  • Inappropriate Uses-I understand that the purpose of having a school technology device is to support my learning; not ever for the purpose of  harassing, bullying, or vandalism. Inappropriate usage, including non-approved programs, may lead to loss of privileges or prosecution.

  • Digital Citizenship-I will treat people with dignity and respect when using the computer and accessing the Internet. I will complete and comply to the digital citizenship curriculum.

  • Privileges-I understand that using the computer network is a privilege I must earn and maintain by my responsible use. If I don’t use the computer properly or treat others respectfully on-line, I will lose that privilege and face disciplinary actions and my parents will be notified.

  • Financial Responsibility- We understand that accidents happen. However, reoccurring accidents that result in damaged tech devices unfortunately must have a monetary consequence. We strongly believe in students learning the appropriate navigation of our cyber world, but must have relief financially when damage to tech devices are excessive and/or negligent. We teach our students about device expectations, safety, and responsibilities with care and must have accountability for this.

If students are not using technology appropriately and meeting the expectations of the technology agreement, the following steps will be followed:

Infractions that will result in an immediate office referral:

  • Visiting inappropriate sites intentionally
  • Cyberbullying
  • Intentional damage of tech device

For other incidents and minor infractions teachers will use a 3 strikes system:

  1. Verbal warning to student
  2. Restorative conference with student
  3. Loss of device for amount of time determined by teacher and parent/student conference before device is returned.

THE STUDENT AND PARENT MUST BOTH SIGN VERIFYING THAT THEY HAVE READ, UNDERSTAND, AND AGREE TO ABIDE BY THE RULES OF THE CONDUCT CONTRACT AND ACCEPTABLE USE OF TECHNOLOGY AGREEMENT.
