  • The District will provide a wireless “filtered” Internet connection for student devices to connect to throughout the school day. This wireless connection is separate from the school’s network and allows for “filtered” Internet access only.

  • For accountability, students must register their personal devices before connecting to the school’s wireless system.
  • Students without personal technology devices will not be excluded from educational activities.
  • Students may bring their personal technology devices to school if they choose. The school recognizes this as a family choice. Participation is completely voluntary.
  • Students are expected to handle personal technology devices the same as school owned devices. The same rules apply.
  • Student participation is a privilege which can be lost for irresponsible use.
  • Students may use their devices for educational use only during classes.
