Families should be aware that some material accessible on the Internet might contain items that are illegal, defamatory, inaccurate, or potentially offensive.  While the purposes of the school are to use Internet resources for constructive educational goals, students may find ways to access other materials.  We believe that the benefits to students from access to the Internet in the form of information resources and opportunities for collaboration exceed the disadvantages.  Parents and guardians of minors are responsible for setting and conveying the standards that their children should follow when using media and information sources.   This document is not all-inclusive and subject to change without notice.

STUDENT CHROMEBOOKS. Students are expected to bring their fully charged APS-issued technology devices to school with them for in-person instruction. We also highly recommend students bring their chargers and earbuds.

UNAUTHORIZED USE of personal electronic devices includes, but is not limited to, the following: 1. Possessing, viewing, sending, or sharing video or audio information having sexual, violent, or threatening content on school grounds, school events, or school busses shall be prohibited and may result in disciplinary action and/or confiscation of the personal electronic device. 2. Transmitting school materials for unethical purposes such as cheating. 3. Any activity which may be in violation of the Albuquerque Public Schools Bullying Prevention policy and procedural directive.

STUDENT USE OF PERSONAL ELECTRONIC DEVICES that disrupt the instructional day may result in disciplinary action and/or confiscation of the personal electronic device. When a personal electronic device is confiscated, it shall only be released and/or returned to the student’s parent/legal guardian. It is the student’s parent/legal guardian’s responsibility to retrieve the device according to school procedures.

SOCIAL MEDIA/SOCIAL NETWORKING. Student use of social media or social networking that disrupts the instructional day may result in disciplinary action. Proper behavior, as it relates to the use of computers, is no different from proper behavior in all other aspects of Albuquerque Public Schools activities. All users shall use the computers and computer networks in a responsible, ethical, and polite manner. Violation of this procedural directive shall be grounds for school disciplinary action.

STUDENT INTERNET SAFETY Students shall not disclose their full name or any other personal contact information for any purpose on the Internet. Personal contact information includes address, telephone, or school address. Students shall not share or post privacy-revealing personal information about themselves or other people. Students shall tell their teacher or another school employee about any message they receive that is inappropriate or makes them feel uncomfortable. Students should not delete the message until instructed to do so by a staff member. Students should not provide their passwords to anyone under any condition. Students must immediately tell their teacher if their password is lost or stolen, or if they think someone has gained unauthorized access to their accounts.

PRIVACY Network and Internet access shall be provided as a tool for education. Albuquerque Public Schools shall reserve the right to monitor, inspect, copy, review and store at any time and without prior notice any and all usage of the computer network and Internet access and any and all information transmitted or received in connection with such usage. All such information files shall be and remain the property of Albuquerque Public Schools and no student shall have any expectation of privacy regarding such materials.

COPYRIGHT VIOLATIONS Copying, selling, or distributing copyrighted material without the express written permission of the author or publisher (users should assume that all materials available on the Internet are protected by copyright) and engaging in plagiarism (using other's words or ideas as your own) shall be prohibited, and in most cases illegal.

INAPPROPRIATE MATERIALS OR LANGUAGE:  Profane, abusive, or impolite language should not be used to communicate nor should materials be accessed which are not in line with the rules of school behavior.  A good rule to follow is never to view, send, or access materials that you would not want your parents or teachers to see.  Should students encounter such material by accident, they should report it to their teacher immediately.

 

As a parent or guardian of a student at Lyndon B. Johnson Middle School, I have read the user agreement information about the appropriate use of technology at the school. I understand that my child may have to pay for the repair or replacement of damaged equipment. Questions should be directed to the administration or Technology Committee Chair for clarification.
