6 Cathedral Schools Acceptable Use Policy Grades K - 8 Internet Acceptable Use Policy Cathedral School offers Internet access to students. In order to be provided access to the Internet provided by Cathedral School, each student and his or her legal guardian must sign this Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) after having read the document. Once the AUP is signed, the student agrees to adhere to the document s content when using the Internet provided by Cathedral School. The signed document is valid only for one school year after which a new AUP document must be signed prior to a new school year. General Internet Policy: Access to the Internet enables students to explore thousands of libraries, databases, and other knowledge repositories linked together through the network called the Internet. Students may use the Internet to participate in distance learning activities, to seek answers from experts, or to find information related to learning assignments given in classes. School technology staff and classroom teachers will assist a student to develop skills and etiquette necessary to discriminate among information sources, identify appropriate information for their assignment, and to evaluate the truthfulness of information found on the Internet. Making Internet access available to a student carries with it a potential for encountering information not appropriate for students. It is not easy to control web site content ahead of going to a web site. Creating a safe Internet environment for a student is an important goal for our school, but cannot be perfectly achieved without assistance from all participating parties student, parent, and school. Each student must be aware this school does not give unlimited access privilege to the student. Instead, the student only receives authorization to visit websites related to educational assignments given to the student. Parents must assist the school with this task by insisting their child be a responsible Internet user. Parents should encourage their child to visit only proper web sites and should monitor Internet activities of their children when at home. The school will bear the responsibility of attempting to limit access to non-educational web sites through the use of Internet filtering. Cathedral School makes every effort to filter Internet information through the use of electronic filters, user policies, and teacher supervision. Efforts to provide for safe use include, but are not limited to, the following: 1. Blocking access by minors to inappropriate matter on the Internet. 2. Educating minors about the use of electronic mail, chat rooms, and other forms of direct electronic communications. 3. Preventing unauthorized access including hacking and other unlawful activities by minors online. 4. Preventing unauthorized disclosure, use and dissemination of personal information regarding minors 5. Restricting minors access to materials harmful to minors. Student Privilege to Use the Internet: Using the Internet at Cathedral School, whether using school equipment or personal computing devices is, indeed a privilege and not a right for each student. It is entirely possible for a student to receive an education without access to the Internet.
7 Therefore, each student must be aware there is a consequence for inappropriate use of the Internet that will result in immediate loss of privilege to use the Internet by the student. Depending upon the nature of the infraction, the length of time the student is kept off the school s Internet service will be determined on a caseby-case basis. If warranted, other disciplinary measures may be necessary as outlined in the Student Handbook. Unacceptable Student Use of the Internet: This list represents major issues related to unacceptable Internet use, whether school equipment or a personal computing device. It is impossible to cite all possible unacceptable uses of the Internet. Thus, the student is aware that he or she may be cited for other unacceptable uses not specifically listed here. Our advice to students is to error on the side of caution when in doubt about a particular use of the Internet being acceptable or unacceptable. When a student is in doubt about a particular use of the Internet, he or she is encouraged to speak with a staff member, building administrator, or the director of technology to receive clarification on the issue. 1. Posting personal information about yourself or another person including such items as residential address, telephone number, or certain school information 2. Entering into or initiating an Internet chat session using Instant Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, IRC, etc. unless monitored by a staff member and as a part of a classroom assignment or project 3.

Using a proxy server to bypass the school Internet filter in order to access prohibited materials, or hide one s identity 8. Violating copyright law by illegally using information the student does not have proper permission to use. Illegal Use of Internet service: Cathedral School and administrators expect that each student will make good decisions about appropriate use of the Internet accessed through our school computer network. Each computer has several unique identification numbers used when communicating with other computers. All Cathedral School computers have logging software that feeds data about the user to a permanent record. Information about web sites visited, time of day, software use, etc. are recorded and archived from each computer. Cathedral School willingly cooperates with local, state, or federal agencies accountable for policing Internet use. All school Internet abuse incidents will be investigated as completely as possible utilizing all enforcement agencies whose jurisdiction warrants inclusion. In cases where state or federal law is broken by student use of the Internet, evidence residing on school computers and routing devices will be available to law enforcement officials to use for prosecution of those responsible for the act. Possible situations that students should avoid include: 1. Vandalizing school computer hardware or software. This would include stealing computer hardware components, tampering with a computer or software, or pirating software residing on school computers.
8 2. Posting personal information, pictures and/or videos about a person without his or her consent to any Internet site whether using a school computer over the school s network or a personal computing device. 3. Attempting to gain unauthorized access to any computer that is a part of the Internet including file and web servers. In addition, the act of simply probing another computer to find computer security weaknesses is considered an illegal activity. 4. Attempting to disrupt normal computer operation or network operation in any fashion so that users are limited or stopped from accessing other computers on the network (including the Internet). Activity such as downloading a virus onto a computer or spreading a virus over a network of computers constitutes an illegal action. 5. Engaging in any other illegal activity not specifically listed above using the school computer network and/or personal computing devices will be pursued to the full extent of the law. Student Signature Signifying Agreement to Comply with Acceptable Use Policy: I understand and will abide by the acceptable use policy guidelines listed in this document. I further understand that any violation of the policy s guidelines is cause for school disciplinary review and possible criminal charges.

I understand that this network access to the Internet is designed for educational purposes to supplement my child s education. I understand that Cathedral School will exercise due diligence in filtering questionable Internet web sites using filtering software at their firewall computer. I recognize that it is impossible for the school to restrict access to all controversial Internet content, and I will not hold the school liable for inappropriate material that might be viewed by my child using school computers. I also understand that no filter exists for personal computing devices, and therefore the school assumes no responsibility for content accessed through these devices. Further I accept my responsibilities spelled out in this acceptable use document to supervise my child s Internet activities at home and to speak with my child about acceptable uses of the Internet both at home and school. I hereby give my consent to allow my child access to the Internet using the school computer network connected to the Internet and/or his/her own personal computing devices: Parent/Guardian Signature: Date:
