The Guidance Charter School STUDENT ACCEPTABLE TECHNOLOGY USE POLICY This Student Acceptable Use Policy was adopted by the Board on March 6, 2014. The School’s Acceptable Use Policy (“AUP”) is to prevent unauthorized access and other unlawful activities by users online, prevent unauthorized disclosure of or access to sensitive information, and to comply with the Children’s Internet Protection Act (“CIPA”). This AUP covers the use of computing devices that may include, but are not limited to, cell phones, smart phones, digital cameras and video recorders, digital audio recording devices, netbooks, laptops, tablets, iPads and desktop computers or any other technology that contains a computer or network capabilities. As used in this policy, “user” includes any student and/or minor using the computers, Internet, email, chat rooms, social media and other forms of direct electronic communications or equipment provided by the School (the “network.”) regardless of the physical location of the user. THIS AUP APPLIES EVEN WHEN SCHOOL PROVIDED EQUIPMENT (IPAD, DESKTOP COMPUTER, LAPTOP, LEARNPAD ETC.) IS USED OUTSIDE SCHOOL PROPERTY. The School will use technology protection measures to block or filter, to the extent practicable, access of visual depictions that are obscene, pornographic, and harmful to minors over the network. The School reserves the right to monitor users' online activities and to access, review, copy, and store or delete any electronic communication or files and disclose them to others as it deems necessary to ensure compliance with the terms and conditions of this AUP as well as for network and device maintenance. The School may use and disclose data found on the School’s network and/or School owned devices in order to further the health, safety, discipline or security of any student or other person, or to protect property. The School may also use data/information contained on its network and/or devices in disciplinary actions, to collect monetary payment or to protect property and will furnish evidence of crime to law enforcement. USERS HAVE NO EXPECTATION OF PRIVACY REGARDING THEIR USE OF SCHOOL PROPERTY, NETWORK AND/OR INTERNET ACCESS OR FILES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO EMAIL. The School will take all necessary measures to fortify the network against potential cyber security threats. This may include blocking access to School applications—including but not limited to email, data management and reporting tools, and other web applications—outside the United States and Canada. In addition to signing this AUP students are required to complete School training relating to the use of the School Network, the Internet and School owned devices. 39 Page 1 of 5
