Internet Safety for Our Students
Educational opportunities can be greatly enhanced by taking advantage of the extended learning resources available on the Internet. District 201-U has developed a program to allow student access to the Internet. The district’s goal in providing this service is to promote educational excellence by assisting in resource sharing, creativity, and communication. With this educational opportunity also comes responsibility.
Prior to Internet Use
Before a student may have access to the Internet, parents/guardians will need to read the Acceptable Use Policy / Network Use Guidelines letter (English/Spanish), and both parents/guardians and students must sign the Acceptable Use Policy / Network Use Guidelines / Authorization for Electronic Networks Access (student agreement) (English/Spanish).
The use of inappropriate material or language or violation of copyright laws may result in the loss of the privilege to use the Internet. Please remember that you are legally responsible for your child’s actions. District 201-U takes precautions and uses a commercial Internet filtering program to prevent access to materials that may be defamatory, inaccurate, offensive, or otherwise inappropriate in the school setting. It is impossible, however, to control all material, and a user may discover inappropriate material.
Ultimately, parent(s)/guardian(s) are responsible for setting and conveying standards for their children. The school district supports and respects each family’s right to decide whether to authorize Internet access.
District 201-U reserves the right to publish, in any form, student produced work for the express purpose of instructional demonstration, etc. Parents who do not wish to allow Crete-Monee School District 201-U to publish examples of their child’s work must notify the district in writing of their desire.
