CSSU Technology Use Guidelines for Students (TUGS)
Using technology correctly and responsibly is very important. I always need to act as a safe, secure, and responsible cyber-citizen. The key word to remember is RESPECT!
The following are some basic expectations for my use of technology:
I will respect myself.
I will use technology in a safe manner.
I will never give out my personal information.
I will talk to a trusted adult whenever I feel uncomfortable or need help.
I will respect the rights of others.
Passwords will only be shared with the teacher or a parent/guardian.
No user is to try to discover another user’s password.
No student user is permitted to access another user’s files, unless shared.
No user is to create, view, or forward oﬀensive or disruptive sounds, text, images, or video.
Treat others online as you would like to be treated.
Students will not take pictures, record voices, or capture video of others without teacher permission.
I will respect the technology.
Take good care of our equipment and use it as it is intended to be used. To help all users, keep settings in place on shared equipment.
Never try things that you are not trained or permitted to do.
Devices that I bring from home are my responsibility. The school is not responsible for personal devices that are broken or stolen.
I will respect the law.
Students will not copy work and call it their own.
Always give proper credit to the creator for words, images, or videos included in your work.
Do not spread viruses or knowingly disrupt the online environment.
I will respect the purpose of school technology.
If I use technology in a way that is inappropriate/unsafe for myself or others, my access may be suspended until I have a plan for successful use.
If I violate any school or district rules through my use of technology, I may have my technology access suspended. I might also face other disciplinary and/or legal actions.
