Burkburnett Independent School District Student / Parent Device Use Agreement
Burkburnett ISD is excited to provide the opportunity for our students to take home or use in the classroom a digital device for learning. Please understand that prior to taking the learning device home or use in the classroom, students will be instructed and evaluated on proper use and care. A checkout form is attached outlining the cost if damaged, stolen, or lost. Students must follow the Burkburnett ISD Responsible Use Guidelines. Students must pay a usage / technology protection plan for their Chromebook for an annual fee of $10 for BMS Chromebooks / $25 for BHS Chromebooks. These guidelines can be found on
Student Code of Conduct
1. Electronic files sent, received, viewed or stored anywhere in the computer system are available for review by any authorized Burkburnett ISD staff for any purpose.
2. Modifying or changing device settings and /or internal or external configurations without appropriate permission is prohibited.
3. Personal information such as, but not limited to, last name, home address, phone numbers, email addresses, or birth dates must not be placed on a device or shared online.
4. Using obscene, threatening or disrespectful language in any electronic communication tool is prohibited.
5. Disclaimer: While BISD uses technology protection measures to limit access to material considered harmful or inappropriate to students, it may not be possible for the District to absolutely prevent such access. Despite our best efforts and beyond the limits of filtering technology, a student may run across some material that is objectionable. Burkburnett ISD has a 3-layer approach when students are using the Internet. The device is automatically routed through Burkburnett ISD’s filter for appropriate content which provides the first layer. The second layer is the monitoring of an adult, and the third layer is where the student should use their digital responsibility skills when using a device.
Responsible Use and Care
1. The device is to be treated as a valuable object. It should not be thrown, purposely dropped, or abused. It will never be placed on the roof or hood of a car, on the sidewalk or street, or imperiled in any way that may cause it to be crushed or thrown to the ground.
2. The device will never be left unattended on the bus, in the cafeteria, in the gym or any other public place.
3. The device will not be used in or near proximity to water, household chemicals, or other liquids that could damage its electronic components.
4. The device will be protected from the environment to prevent rain, snow, ice, excessive heat, and/or cold.
5. Pencils, pen tips, and other pointed objects will never be used on the screen.
6. The device will be kept away from siblings and pets at all times.
7. Parents and students agree to return the device and all components to the school in the same condition the device was issued to the student.
BISD assigns to Student the use of the following equipment and accessories:
*Students are required to purchase a usage / technology protection plan for their iPad/Chromebook for an annual fee of $10 for BMS Chromebooks / $25 for BHS Chromebooks.
*Devices must be protected by a provided case or a case that meets the District required specifications at all times. If a device is damaged while in a non-District case, an additional $40 fee will be charged.
*More than one (1) occurrence of loss, theft or damage in 30 days will be interpreted as neglect.
**The costs of any other parts needed for repairs will be based on the manufacturer's current price list.

The 4 Behaviors of a BISD Digital Citizen
Do not share private information such as your full name, address, birthday, social security number, passwords, family information and other personal information.
Visit age appropriate websites.
Avoid conversations with strangers.
What happens on the internet could be there forever. Pictures, messages, texts, web-sites, videos, and chats can all be retrieved. These digital records could be shared resulting in a “digital footprint” that does not go away.
Always consider your reputation before you send, view, or search.
Create a digital footprint that you are proud to share.
Monitor how much time you spend in front of the screen.
Show others respect when using their ideas or work by giving them credit, just as you should expect others to treat your ideas.
Utilize the digital world to create greater educational opportunities.
Be- a Good Citizen
Kindness to others, even when they cannot see you, is always expected.
Good citizens are supportive and encouraging of others both while at school and away.
Report citizens that are not demonstrating good citizenship.
Help your parents grow in their understanding of the digital world and give them reasons to trust and support you.
Student Acceptable Use Policy as referred to in Board Policy CQ (LEGAL)
Burkburnett Independent School District provides a variety of electronic communications systems for educational purposes.
The electronic communications system is defined as the District’s network (including the wireless network), servers, computer workstations, mobile technologies, peripherals, applications, databases, online resources, Internet access, email, and any other technology designated for use by students, including all new technologies as they become available.
System users and parents of students with access to the District's computer network should be aware that users will be provided access via the Internet to other electronic communications systems in the global electronic network that may contain inaccurate and/or objectionable material. While the District will take reasonable steps to restrict access to such material, it is not possible to absolutely prevent such access. In addition, the smooth operation of the network relies upon the proper conduct of end users who must adhere to guidelines. These guidelines are provided so that users are aware of the responsibilities they are about to acquire.
This also includes any access to the Burkburnett ISD electronics system while on or near school property, in school vehicles and at school-sponsored activities, and includes the appropriate use of district technology resources via off-campus remote access. Please note that the Internet is a network of many types of communication and information networks, including Web 2.0 resources (Blogs, Wikis, Podcasts, etc.), and is part of the district’s electronic communications systems. Web 2.0 applications offer a variety of 21st Century communication, collaboration, and educational creativity opportunities. In a 21st Century school system, technologies, the Internet, and Web 2.0 tools are essential.
Burkburnett ISD uses certain cloud-based (online) applications, meaning applications (such as Google Apps for Education or online grade books) that allow authorized individuals to access student information, including assignments and grades, through the Internet for school-related purposes.
In accordance with the Children’s Internet Protection Act, Burkburnett Independent School District educates staff and students regarding appropriate online behavior to ensure Internet safety, including use of email and Web 2.0 resources, and has deployed filtering technology and protection measures to restrict access to inappropriate content such as those that are illegal, harmful, or contain potentially offensive information. While every effort is made to provide the most secure and optimal learning environment, it is not possible to absolutely prevent access (accidental or otherwise) to inappropriate content.
It is each student’s responsibility to follow the guidelines for appropriate and acceptable use.
