· I will supervise my child’s use of the Internet and email

· I will not load or delete any software from the iPad

· I will make sure my child recharges the iPad battery nightly

· I will make sure my child brings the iPad to school every day

PARENT COMPUTER ACCEPTABLE USE AGREEMENT

The purpose of this document focuses on Internet usage, but applies to all computer usage in the North Fork Local Schools. All students have access to computers in the classroom, libraries and labs that are connected to The Local School Network. The Local School Network has reference materials, word processing, and other educational programs. The Internet is a separate privilege, which allows students’ access to the World Wide Web (Internet). Students in kindergarten through third grade will not have personal access to the Internet. Internet access is not available to any students unless the Computer Acceptable Use Agreement Form has been completed and signed.

With access to the Internet, there is material available that is considered to be of educational value in the context of the school setting. The Board has implemented the use of Technology Protection Measures which is a specific technology that will protect against (e.g., block/filter) Internet access to visual displays that are obscene, child pornography or pornography, and other material that is obscene, objectionable, inappropriate and /or harmful to minors. However, on the Internet, it is impossible to control all materials, and students may discover controversial information.

North Fork Local Schools firmly believe that the valuable information available on the Internet far outweighs the possibility that students may access materials that are not consistent with educational goals of our district. Parent/Guardians assume this risk by consenting to allow their students to participate in the use of the Internet. Students accessing the Internet through the school’s computers assume personal responsibility and liability, both civil and criminal, for unauthorized or inappropriate use of the Internet.

These guidelines are provided so that parents/guardians may be aware of the student’s responsibilities. These guidelines require the student to use The Local School Network and Internet in an efficient, ethical, and legal manner. System administrators reserve the right to monitor the Local School Network and Internet use, while respecting the privacy of the student. If a student violates any of these provisions, the student’s account may be terminated and future access could be denied.

As the parent/guardian of this student, I have read the Student Network and Internet Acceptable Use and Safety Policy and Guidelines, and have discussed them with my child. I will not hold the Board (or any of its employees, administrators or officers) responsible for materials my child may acquire or come in contact with while on the Internet. I further understand that individuals and families may be liable for violations. The extent that proprietary rights in the design of a web site hosted on the Board’s servers would vest in my child upon creation, I agree to assign those rights to the Board.
