Instruction 
BP 6163.4(a)
STUDENT USE OF TECHNOLOGY
The Governing Board recognizes that technology provides ways to access the most current and extensive sources of information. Technology also enables students to practice skills and to develop reasoning and problem-solving abilities. Every effort shall be made to provide equal access to technology throughout the District's schools and classes.
(cf. 0440 - District Technology Plan)
(cf. 6162.7 - Use of Technology in Instruction)
On-Line Services/Internet Access
The Board intends that the Internet and other on-line resources provided by the District be used to support the instructional program and further student learning.
The Superintendent or designee shall establish regulations governing student access to technology that are age appropriate. These regulations shall prohibit access to harmful matter on the Internet which may be obscene or pornographic and preclude other misuses of the system. In addition, these regulations shall establish the fact that users have no expectation of privacy and that District staff may monitor or examine all system activities to ensure proper use of the system. Students who fail to abide by District rules shall be subject to disciplinary action, revocation of the service access and legal action as appropriate.
(cf. 5125.2 - Withholding Grades, Diploma or Transcripts)
(cf. 5144 - Discipline)
(cf. 5144.1 - Suspension and Expulsion/Due Process)
(cf. 5145.12 - Search and Seizure)
(cf. 6162.6 - Use of Copyrighted Materials)
Because the Internet contains an unregulated collection of resources, Superintendent or designee will establish procedures for reducing exposure to inappropriate material; however, the District cannot assure the accuracy of the information or the appropriateness of all material that a student may encounter. Therefore, before using the District's on-line services, each student and his/her parent/guardian shall sign and return an Acceptable Use Agreement. This agreement shall specify user obligations and responsibilities and shall indemnify the District for any damages. The parent/guardian shall agree not to hold the District responsible for materials acquired by the student on the system, for violations of copyright restrictions, users' mistakes or negligence or any costs incurred by users. Staff shall supervise students while using on-line services and may ask teacher aides and student aides to assist in this supervision.
