Transcript of Visual of PISD Responsible Use Policy

Pasadena I.S.D.
Responsible Use Policy
"To educate District employees and students on proper computer/network/Internet use and conduct, system users are required to review this policy and Technology Use Guidelines eCourse at the beginning of each school year."
All users have to review the RUP EVERY year.
"The parent or legal guardian of a student user is required to acknowledge receipt and understanding of the District’s Responsible Use Policy as part of their review of the Student Code of Conduct/Handbook."
All students' parents will have to agree that they RECEIVED this policy and UNDERSTAND it in the Student Handbook.
"Employees supervising students who use the District’s technology resources must provide training emphasizing its appropriate use."
All students using district technology
must be trained by their teachers on
User Responsibility.
Network Use
"Do not login using an unauthorized account, another users account, or allow students to access an employee’s account."
Only login and/or use accounts that are YOURS.
"Do not view, modify, move, copy or delete folders or files unless given permission by the owner or authorized district personnel."
Only use district resources AS INSTRUCTED.
"All work/intellectual capital created using district systems remains the property of PISD."
Anything you create using district resources is owned by the district.
"The network systems may not be used for illegal purposes, in support of illegal activities, harassment, or for any other activity prohibited by district policy or local/state/federal laws."
While using district resources you must obey the LAW and all Pasadena ISD policies.
"Use for commercial, income-generating or “for profit” activities, product advertisement, or political lobbying is prohibited."
You can only use these resources for educational purposes.
Internet Use
"Use of the Internet by students must be supervised."
You will be monitored by your teacher at all times.
"The Internet should be used primarily for educational/district related purposes. All activity on the Internet is being recorded and can be monitored."
Pasadena ISD will monitor all Internet activity...
"Do not download files, run programs or install applications without consent from appropriate administrative staff."
Only download and use district resources as INSTRUCTED.
"Follow Copyright laws and Fair Use guidelines."
Do not claim another person's work as your own.
"If you access an inappropriate web site, or observe others doing so, immediately notify appropriate administrative staff."
If you access an inappropriate Internet site, let your teacher know RIGHT AWAY.
"Has no adverse effect on a student’s academic performance"
"Sites accessible via the computer/network/Internet may contain material that is illegal, defamatory, inaccurate or controversial."
Don't believe or trust everything you read on the Internet.
"Each District computer with Internet access has filtering software that blocks access to visual depictions that are obscene, pornographic, inappropriate for students, or harmful to minors, as defined by the federal Children’s Internet Protection Act. The District makes every effort to limit access to objectionable material; however, controlling all such materials on the computer/network/Internet is impossible, even with filtering in place. With global access to computers and people, a risk exists that students may access material that may not be of educational value in the school setting."
The district makes every attempt to block inappropriate material on the Internet.
"The Internet may be accessed by a student unless the student's parent or guardian has filed a written request with the building principal.This request, indicating that the Internet should not be accessed, must be filed annually with the building principal."
Unless an annual written request is filed for a student, all Pasadena ISD students have access to the Internet.
Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act
They call it "FERPA"... no really, that's what it's called.
Users of Pasadena ISD electronic resources and networks recognize that they are bound to comply with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA”) in their handling of educational records of students enrolled in PISD. It is also understood and recognized that employees, unless required by judicial or regulatory authority, shall not be permitted to authorize and further disclose the educational records of the other party to persons or entities without first having received permission.
FERPA protects your information at school.
"Students and employees may participate in District-approved social media learning environments related to curricular projects or school activities and use digital tools, such as, but not limited to, mobile devices, blogs, discussion forums, RSS feeds, podcasts, wikis, and on-line meeting sessions."
Teachers may use social networks (Facebook, Edmodo, etc.) for school.
"The use of blogs, wikis, podcasts, and other digital tools are considered an extension of the classroom."
Social media sites, if used by the teacher for educational purposes, are considered an extension of the classroom.
"Verbal or written language that is considered inappropriate in the classroom is also inappropriate in all uses of blogs, wikis, podcasts, and other district-approved digital tools."
So, you will be required to follow the Student Code of Conduct/Handbook on Social Media sites.
"Employees who use digital learning tools in their classrooms must monitor student actions to ensure compliance with the Student Code of Conduct/Handbook."
Teachers will have to watch for and report inappropriate behavior on these Social Media sites just like at school.
"These guidelines apply to stand-alone computers as well as any electronic device connected to the Network/Internet."
These guidelines also apply to use of any personal device connected to the district Network/Internet.
"The district makes no warranties of any kind, whether expressed or implied, for the services it is providing and is not responsible for any damages suffered by users. This includes loss of data or software resulting from re-imaging, repair process, delays, non-deliveries, miss-deliveries, or service interruptions caused by negligence or user errors or omissions. District resources will not be used to recover software/apps/files installed by system users.In the process of protecting the network, PISD cannot guarantee the confidentiality of information. The district is not responsible for phone/credit card bills or any other charges incurred by users. Use of any information obtained via the Network/Internet is at the user’s own risk. The district specifically denies any responsibility for the accuracy or quality of information obtained through its services. Opinions, advice, services, and all other information expressed by system users, information providers, service providers, or other third party individuals in the system are those of the providers and not the District."
The district cannot control what is on the internet and has no responsibility for damages and/or charges incurred by the user while connected to the PISD network/Internet.
"The district will cooperate fully with local, state, or federal officials in any investigation concerning or relating to misuse of the district’s network/internet/electronic communications systems."
If you break the law while using district network/Internet, Pasadena ISD will cooperate with all law enforcement investigations.
These are the rules we ALL have to follow in Pasadena ISD ANYTIME we access the district's network/Internet.
