Responsible Use Agreement for Students & Parents

 

Dear Students & Parents/Guardians,

Crook County School District is committed to the use of technology and the Internet for educational purposes. Technology allows teachers to enhance and extend our curriculum in ways that were previously inconceivable. Along with the advantages of using technology also comes the need to educate students about responsibility and safety when using computers, tablets, smartphones and the Internet. The Crook County School District team is committed to providing our students with opportunities to learn and communicate with others, in a safe environment, through a wide range of technology.

In order to comply with the federal Children’s Internet Protection Act, the district uses robust
web filters and device management tools. We also provide digital citizenship toolkits and
opportunities for our teachers and students to set, model, and follow responsible use guidelines in their classrooms. The district believes in access to the Internet and its wealth of
information. While providing access to these resources, the district makes a concerted effort to
only allow access to age appropriate content. The following Responsible Use Policy is meant to
act as a guide to help students and families make positive choices when interacting online. A copy of the district’s policy is attached for your review. Although teachers will review the information in this policy with students, we expect parents to spend some time reviewing it with their student(s), as the rules apply to home usage as well. For additional information on talking with your children about Internet usage, consider the following resources: NET CETERA — Chatting with Kids About Being Online (bit.ly/netcetera) and Common Sense Media (bit.ly/csmparents).
Please read and familiarize yourself with the Responsible Use Policy. Both parents/guardians and students must sign the agreement. The signed copy must be returned to the student’s school for our records before devices can go home.

Thank you for being a part of the Crook County School District community. We look forward to
supporting the continued growth and success together. If you have any further questions, please contact your school’s administrator or the district’s technology department.
Sincerely,

Michelle Jonas             kurt sloper         jim bates          Cheri R                 Mona Boyd
