Mountain View School District is continually committed to developing an atmosphere of trust among parents and the community in our ability to provide not only a positive and enriching educational experience but a safe place for students to thrive. That is why we have partnered with Family Zone, a leading provider of cyber safety products and education, to create an educational hub for parents and teachers. This hub includes articles, videos, courses, and more to ensure each of you know how to keep our kids safe online.
In order for the District to be able to continue to make its computer network and internet access available, all users, including students, must take responsibility for appropriate and lawful use of this access. Students utilizing school-provided internet access are responsible for good behavior online. The same general rules for behavior apply to students’ use of District-provided computer systems. Students must understand that one student’s misuse of the network and internet access may jeopardize the ability of all students to enjoy such access.
Digital citizenship refers to the responsible use of technology by anyone who uses computers, the Internet, and digital devices to engage with society on any level. Mountain View School District invites you to read over Policy 3270 District (found on our District website www.sd244.org ) Provided Access to Technology for a more in-depth outline.
Our goal as a District is to provide a safe and secure system that helps to enhance the educational process and outcomes for staff and students. I hope you leverage these free tools to assist us in that objective. Thank you for doing your part to make the internet and other technological areas a safe and educational-rich environment.
