• 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.

    • Non-educational games and personal use are not allowed on school equipment.

    • All work stored on school equipment belongs to the school and may be accessed by school personnel.


    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.
