File: IJNDB -E(4) Employee Guidelines for the Use of the
Internet as an Instructional Tool
User name IDs,
account numbers and passwords.
User names, account numbers
and passwords issued to staff members must remain confidential. Employees obtaining the Internet at home
through the district should not give students their user ID and the access
phone number. Any staff member violating this policy will be subject to
navigation on the Internet by faculty and staff
Employees are encouraged to
explore WWW resources. Clearly, such explorations should be for educational
purposes. Downloading and/or printing
files and images containing content which is inappropriate for a K-12 setting
is prohibited. School participation in
chat discussions groups or newsgroups whose content is inappropriate for a K-12
setting is also prohibited. Staff
members are expected to employee professional judgment in the determination of
exploration of the Internet
Faculty who are exploring
Internet sites with a class do not need special parental acknowledgement if the
faculty member is in control of the navigation and/or is directing the students
to known educational sites. A student
who is navigating the Internet at the teacher's direction is not considered to
be independently using the Internet; this circumstance does not require
parental permission. Students should not
be directed to an Internet site that the teacher has not previewed.
navigation of the Internet by students
Independent navigation of the
Internet by students requires both the student signature and parental
permission on the student assurances form. The intent of the permission is not
to discourage independent research on the Internet; however, constant teacher
supervision under these circumstances will not be possible. Students are not permitted to search for,
download or print any objectionable, vulgar or offensive material. Unsupervised participation in group
discussion chats or newsgroups is not permitted. The signed permission form should be
maintained by the school and should be obtained prior to assigning independent
research of the Internet. Students
utilizing the computer lab before and/or after school for Internet activities
of their own choice should also have assurances on file at the school.
for installation of personal software
Installing personal software
Teachers may install legal
copies (original disks and documentation must be kept at school) on their
classroom computers. Shareware and freeware can be used in the classroom.
Teachers should be aware that
there is no impenetrable virus protection.
Although the district will maintain some amount of virus protection, the
district is not responsible for any damage to machines or programs resulting
from the exchange or importation of infected programs or files.
Teachers should be aware that
when the district periodically updates the network it is possible that teacher
software and/or files will be removed and will require reinstallation. It is
recommended that the teachers maintain regularly updated backup copies of all
files saved on the Internet hard drive (c:drive).
I have read these
guidelines and agree to abide by them in my assigned role as an employee of the
