Information Technology Network and Student Email Accounts

September 17, 2014 District policy 4526 sets forth specifics regarding access to the school district’s information technology network and acceptable use of the Internet. The school district reserves the right to access, review and monitor use of the network as well as the data that is stored or transmitted. Use of the email system for personal business is not authorized. There was some limited piloting of district-created individual student email accounts last school year. Also, the school district is aware that more and more students arrive at school already having their own personal or family email account. The Interim Superintendent of Schools is gathering facts and background information on this matter of individual student email accounts. Meanwhile, any further piloting of district-created individual student emails is ‘on hold’ at least for the start of this school year, until a suitable protocol or policy is put into place by the school board.
