The school’s information technology resources, including email and Internet access, are provided for educational purposes. Internet and network resources access is available to any student of the Oakview Preparatory School.
The School system believes that the Internet is a powerful and important medium for information sharing connecting millions of computers from all over the world. Because of the immense variety of information accessible, Oakview Preparatory School must determine guidelines for appropriate content.
The Oakview Preparatory School has taken steps to instruct students on acceptable network use, proper network use, proper network etiquette, and to restrict access to inappropriate resources or information on the Internet. However, on a global network it is impossible to completely control and monitor student access to data.
The primary responsibility for access will rest with the student. We believe that the benefits to students from access to the Internet exceed the disadvantages. (Ultimately, parents and guardians are responsible for setting and conveying the standards their children should follow when using networked information sources)
Adherence to the following policy is necessary for continued access to the school's technological resources: Students must:
Each student agrees to comply with the above acceptable uses for computers and school network. The rules and conditions governing the use of Oakview Preparatory School computer and telecommunications resources and services and that they understand that violation of this policy may result in disciplinary action, including the loss of a student's privileges to use the school's information technology resources. School and network administrators and their authorized employees monitor the use of information technology resources to help ensure thatuses are secure and in conformity with this policy.
Administrators reserve the right to examine, use, and disclose any data found on the school's information networks in order to further the health, safety, discipline, or security of any student or other person, or to protect property. They may also use this information in disciplinary actions, and will furnish evidence of crime to law enforcement.
