SUBJECT: STAFF USE OF COMPUTERIZED INFORMATION RESOURCES
The Board of Education recognizes the importance of allowing staff to make use of the District's computer system (DCS) for educational and work related purposes. Said access includes software, hardware, computer networks and electronic communication systems. All use of the DCS, including independent use off school premises, shall be subject to this policy and accompanying regulations. Generally, the same standards of acceptable staff conduct which apply to any aspect of job performance shall apply to use of the DCS. Employees are expected to communicate in a professional manner consistent with applicable District policies and regulations governing the behavior of school staff.
Staff use of the DCS is conditioned upon written agreement by the staff member that use of the DCS will conform to the requirements of this policy and any regulations adopted to ensure acceptable use of the DCS. All such agreements shall be kept on file in the Information Management Services Office.
This policy does not attempt to articulate all required and/or acceptable uses of the DCS; nor is it the intention of this policy to define all inappropriate usage. Administrative regulations will further define general guidelines of appropriate staff conduct and use as well as prescribed behavior.
District staff shall also adhere to the laws, policies and rules governing computers including, but not limited to, copyright laws, rights of software publishers, license agreements, and rights of privacy created by federal and state law. Staff should NOT expect that information stored on the DCS will be private, however confidential records shall be safeguarded and accessed upon request of the Office of the Superintendent.
