Students shall use the district's system safely, responsibly, and primarily for educational purposes. Students are authorized to use district equipment to access the Internet or other online services in accordance with Board policy, user obligations, school rules and responsibilities specified below. Use of school networks and internet services is a privilege, which may be restricted or revoked at any time. Computer files and electronic communications, including email, are not private and may be accessed by the district for the purpose of ensuring proper use. Inappropriate use may result in disciplinary action and/or legal action in accordance with law and Board policy.

The district reserves the right to monitor use of the district's systems for improper use without advance notice or consent. Students shall not access, post, submit, publish, or display harmful or inappropriate matter that is threatening, obscene, disruptive, or sexually explicit, or that could be construed as harassment or disparagement of others based on their race/ethnicity, national origin, sex, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability, religion, or political beliefs as defined in subdivision (a) Penal Code Section 313. District computers with Internet access have a technology protection measure that blocks or filters Internet access and may monitor location.

The following are examples of inappropriate use that is prohibited:

  1. Using the network to encourage the use of drugs, alcohol, or tobacco, or promoting unethical practices or any activity prohibited by law, Board policy, or administrative regulations.
  2. Using or distributing another person’s password or personal information; passwords are private and shall only be used by the person to which they have been assigned.
  3. Unless otherwise instructed by school personnel, students shall not disclose, use, or disseminate personal identification information about themselves or others when using email, chat rooms, or other forms of direct electronic communication. Students shall be cautioned not to disclose such information (name, address, telephone number, social security number or other personally identifiable information) by other means to individuals contacted through the Internet without the permission of their parents/guardians.
  4. Using the network to engage in commercial or other for-profit activities.
  5. Using the network to threaten, intimidate, harass, or ridicule other students or staff (Cyberbullying).
  6. Using the network to upload, download, or create computer viruses and/or maliciously attempt to harm or destroy district equipment or materials or manipulate the data of any other user, including so-called "hacking."

I understand and agree not to hold the district or district staff responsible for the failure of any technology protection measures, violations of copyright restrictions, or user mistakes or negligence. I understand and agree to indemnify and hold harmless the district and district personnel for any damages or costs that may be incurred.

I understand and agree to comply with the above stated district and school policies and procedures as outlined in Board Policy 6163.4 and Ed Code 51870.5.
