Digital Tools for Teaching and Learning
We live in a global and digital world -- a world changed by technology and new ideas about how we communicate with one another and exchange information. As a result, students must develop the research, information fluency, and technology skills that will allow them to be successful, safe, and ethical in this digital world. For this reason, students are provided computer access privileges at school, as well as access to the Internet, email, digital communication and collaboration tools, online learning spaces, and electronic educational resources. These resources, tools, and equipment are essential to teaching and learning.
The guidelines for responsible use of these tools are outlined in School Board Procedure 2022P.
Under the Federal Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) , the District is required to filter Internet access and to teach online safety. The District takes your student’s safety and privacy very seriously and makes every effort to supervise and monitor student technology use. We use Internet filtering software to block access to content that is obscene, pornographic, or harmful to minors. We provide instruction to all students in the area of Digital Citizenship through use of District-approved curriculum from Common Sense Media.
Given all of these factors, Parents or guardians still do have the right to terminate their student’s access to electronic tools and resources by signing the District Technology Opt-Out form . (El formulario también está disponible en español.)
