•  Use of District Technology Agreement

    Acceptable Use Policy (AUP)

    I understand that I will have the privilege of access to various forms of technology and to the Internet while on school grounds. In order to keep this privilege, I will:

    • Use technology (hardware, software, and the Internet) for educational reasons
    • Use technology only with my teacher’s approval and supervision
    • Use technology to gather, not copy, information
    • Upload, download, post and/or send only those things for which I have been given permission by my teacher
    • Immediately alert my  teacher  or  other  Avon  School  employee  if  I  encounter something inappropriate
    • Be careful and avoid any electronic activity that could be perceived as bullying, harassing or intimidating another person
    • Refrain from any activity that intentionally interferes with the operation of school computers or the network

    I make this agreement so that I can access Avon School’s technology resources in a safe, educationally beneficial way. I will let my teacher know if I am unsure about something I am doing or something my classmates are doing so that I can keep this agreement. I understand that I could lose my privileges if I break this agreement and that there could be other consequences related to any inappropriate use of district technology.
