Copan Public Schools Internet and Other Computer Networks Acceptable Use and Internet Policy
Copan Public Schools is pleased to provide students, teachers, staff, patrons and other community members access to its technological resources and internet access. The Copan Public School Board is committed to providing a positive, productive learning and working environment as well as educating minors about appropriate online behavior. This includes, but is not limited to: cyberbullying awareness, response, and respectful interaction with individuals on social networks, forums and chatrooms, instant messaging products, and other media platforms.
In order for the Copan Public Schools (CPS) to ensure the continued accessibility of its computer network and the Internet, all school board members, students, staff and patrons must understand the misuse of network and/or Internet access may jeopardize the ability of CPS and its stakeholders to enjoy access to these resources. While CPS makes reasonable efforts to supervise the use of network and Internet access, total compliance and cooperation in exercising and promoting responsible use of these resources is mandatory. Below is the Acceptable Use and Internet Safety Policy (“policy”) of the school district and the Data Acquisition Site that provides Internet access to the school district.
Upon reviewing, signing, and returning this policy as directed, each school board member, student, staff and patron will be given the opportunity to follow the policy and will be given the opportunity to enjoy Internet access at school. If a student is under 18 years of age, s/he must have his or her parents or guardians read and sign the policy. Any student whom, if 18 or older, fails to sign and submit the policy to the school as directed shall not be provided access by CPS. Additionally, any student under 18, who does not return the policy as directed –with the signatures of the student and his/her parents or guardians—shall not be provided access by CPS.
Listed below are the provisions of your agreement regarding computer network and Internet use. Any questions should be directed to Heather Hutto, the Director of Information Technology at
. If any user violates this policy, their access will be denied or withdrawn. Students who violate this policy may also be subject to disciplinary action. Staff who violate this policy may be subject to disciplinary action, which can include termination if the infraction is found to be severe.
By signing this policy, you are agreeing not only to follow the rules in this policy, but are agreeing to report any misuse of the network to the person designated by the school for such reporting. Misuse means any violations of this policy or any other use that is not included in the policy, but has the effect of harming another or his or her property.
Term of the Permitted Use
Any student, staff member, patron or other stakeholder who submits to the school as directed, a properly signed policy and follows the policy to which she or he has agreed, will have computer network and Internet access during the course of the school year. Students will be asked to sign a new policy when entering elementary school, middle school and high school. Staff members will be asked to sign a new policy upon employment in the school district and before they are given an access account. Board Members will be asked to sign a new policy upon taking their board seat. Patrons will be asked to sign a new policy once a year.
1. Educational Purposes. The school district is providing access to its computer networks and the
Internet for educational purposes. The term "educational purpose" includes academic activities, career
development, and limited high-quality self-discovery activities. If you have any doubt about whether a
contemplated activity is educational, the user may consult with the person(s) designated by the school
to help you decide if a use is appropriate.
2. Unacceptable Uses of Network. Among the uses that are considered unacceptable and which
constitute a violation of this policy are the following:
A. Uses that violate the law or encourage others to violate the law. Don’t transmit offensive or
harassing messages; offer for sale or use any substance the possession or use of which is
prohibited by the school district’s student discipline policy; view, transmit or download pornographic materials or materials that encourage others to violate the law; intrude into the networks or computers of others; and download or transmit confidential, trade secret information, or copyrighted materials. Even if materials on the networks are not marked with the copyright symbol, you should assume that all materials are protected unless there is explicit permission on the materials to use them.
B. Uses that cause harm to others or damage to their property. For example, don’t engage in
defamation (harming another's reputation by lies); employ another’s password or some other user
identifier that misleads message recipients into believing that someone other than you is
communicating or otherwise using his/her access to the network or the Internet; upload a worm,
virus, “Trojan horse,” “time bomb,” or other harmful form of programming or vandalism; participate
in “hacking” activities or any form of unauthorized access to other computers, networks, or
C. Uses that jeopardize the security of board member, student, staff and patron access and of the
computer network or other networks on the Internet. For example, do not disclose or share your
password with others; do not impersonate another user.
Any form of harassment using electronic devices, commonly known as Cyberbullying – by students, staff, patrons or other stakeholders—is strictly prohibited and will not be tolerated in the district. Cyberbullying is the use of any electronic communication device to convey a message in any form (text, image, audio, or video) that defames, intimidates, harasses, or is otherwise intended to harm, insult, or humiliate another in a deliberate, repeated, or hostile and unwanted manner under a person’s true or false identity. In addition, any communication of this form that disrupts or prevents a safe and positive educational or working environment may also be considered Cyberbullying. Students, staff, patrons and other stakeholders will refrain from using personal communication devices or district property to harass or stalk another.
CPS considers any report of Cyberbullying seriously and will investigate credible reports promptly.
Students are encouraged to report an incident immediately to a teacher or principal. Students who make a
report are requested to preserve evidence of Cyberbullying. For example, a student may save or bring a copy of an email, text message, picture or other electronic transmission that the student believes was intended to harm, insult, or humiliate.
Staff will take appropriate action and will bring it to the attention of the principal when students report an
incident of Cyberbullying. Staff will attempt to preserve evidence of the Cyberbullying and will submit any
evidence to the principal.
The district may revoke the privilege of students, staff, patrons or other stakeholders whom use district
equipment or electronic communication system to engage in Cyberbullying. The district may revoke the
privilege of students, staff, patrons or other stakeholders whom uses a personal communication device to
engage in Cyberbullying, to bring any personal communication device on the CPS campus or district-sponsored activities.
Students whose behavior is found to be in violation of this policy will be subject to loss of privileges, discipline, up to and including expulsion. Staff whose behavior is found to be in violation of this policy will be subject to discipline, up to and including dismissal. Patrons whose behavior is found to be in violation of this policy will be subject to appropriate sanctions as determined and imposed by the superintendent or Board. The district may also report individuals to law enforcement if necessary.
3. Netiquette. All users must abide by rules of network etiquette, which include the following:
A. Be polite. Use appropriate language. No swearing, vulgarities, suggestive, obscene, belligerent,
or threatening language.
B. Avoid language and uses which may be offensive to other users. Don’t use access to make,
distribute, or redistribute jokes, stories, or other material which is based upon slurs or
stereotypes relating to race, gender, ethnicity, nationality, religion, or sexual orientation.
C. Don’t assume that a sender of e-mail is giving his or her permission for you to forward or
redistribute the message to third parties or to give his/her e-mail address to third parties. This
should only be done with permission or when you know that the individual would have no
D. Be considerate when sending attachments with e-mail (where this is permitted). Be sure that the
file is not too large to be accommodated by the recipient’s system and is in a format which the
recipient can open.
1. General Warning; Individual Responsibility of Parents and Users. All student users and their
parents/guardians are advised that access to the electronic network may include the potential for access
to materials deemed inappropriate for minors. Since the Internet constitutes an unregulated
collection of educational resources which change constantly, it is not possible to predict or control exactly
what resources users may locate. The school district makes no guarantees of the accuracy of the
information or the appropriateness of materials which a student may encounter. Students will be under
teacher supervision; however, it is not possible to constantly monitor individual students and what they
are accessing. Every user must take responsibility for his or her use of the computer network and Internet
and stay away from these sites. Parents are the best stewards of Internet conduct and safety. If a student
or staff member finds that other users are visiting offensive or harmful sites, s/he should report such
use to the appropriate school designee.
2. Personal Safety. Be safe. In using the computer network and Internet, the user should not reveal
personal information such as your home address or telephone number. The user should not use his/her
real last name or any other information which might allow a person to locate you without first obtaining
the permission of a supervising teacher. Do not arrange a face-to-face meeting with someone you
“meet” on the computer network or Internet without your parent’s permission (if you are under 18).
Regardless of your age, you should never agree to meet a person you have only communicated with on
the Internet in a secluded place or in a private setting.
3. “Hacking” and Other Illegal Activities. It is a violation of this policy to use the school’s computer
network or the Internet to gain unauthorized access to other computers or computer systems, or to
attempt to gain such unauthorized access. Any use which violates state or federal law relating to
copyright, trade secrets, the distribution of obscene or pornographic materials, or which violates any
other applicable law or municipal ordinance, is strictly prohibited.
4. Confidentiality of Student Information. Personally identifiable information concerning students may
not be disclosed or used in any way on the Internet without the permission of a parent or guardian or, if
the student is 18 or over, the permission of the student. Users should never give out private or
confidential information about students on the Internet, particularly credit card numbers and Social
Security numbers. A supervising teacher or administrator may authorize the release of directory
information, as defined by law, for internal administrative purposes or approved educational projects
5. Active Restriction Measures. The District utilizes filtering software to prevent students from accessing
visual depictions that are (1) obscene, (2) pornographic, or (3) harmful to minors. The school will
also monitor the online activities of users, through direct observation and/or technological means, to
ensure that users are not accessing such depictions or any other material which is inappropriate for
Internet filtering software may be disabled by a supervising teacher or school administrator, as
necessary, for purposes of bona fide research or other educational projects being conducted by
students age 17 and older. Staff may have less filtered access to the Internet than students; however, in
order to gain unfiltered access the school administrator must request the permission from the Director of
The term “harmful to minors” is defined by the Communications Act of 1934 (47 USC Section 254
[h]), as meaning any picture, image, graphic image file, or other visual depiction that
- taken as a whole and with respect to minors, appeals to a prurient interest in nudity, sex, or excretion;
- depicts, describes, or represents, in a patently offensive way with respect to what is suitable for
minors, an actual or simulated sexual act or sexual contact, actual or simulated normal or perverted
sexual acts, or a lewd exhibition of the genitals;
- taken as a whole, lacks serious literary, artistic, political, or scientific value as to minors.
Network and Internet access is provided as a tool for your education. Copan Public Schools reserves 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 the school district and no user shall have any expectation of privacy regarding such materials.
Failure to Follow Policy
Use of the computer network and Internet is a privilege, not a right. A user violates this policy by his or her own action or by failing to report any violations by other users that come to the attention of the user. Further, a user violates this policy if s/he permits another to use his or her account or password to access the computer network and Internet, including any user whose access has been denied or terminated. Copan Public Schools will also take other disciplinary action in such circumstances. A user who violates this policy shall, at a minimum, have his or her access to the computer network and Internet terminated. CPS reserves the right to refuse to reinstate this access for a designated period of time or indefinitely. Examples include but are not limited to: the remainder of the board members term, remainder of the student’s enrollment, the remainder of the staff member’s employment in the school district, and indefinitely for patron.
Copan Public Schools makes no warranties of any kind, either express or implied, in connection with its provision of access to and use of its computer networks and the Internet provided under this policy. It shall not be responsible for any claims, losses, damages, or costs (including attorney's fees) of any kind suffered, directly or indirectly, by any user [or his or her parent(s) or guardian(s)] arising out of the use of its computer networks or the Internet under this policy. By signing this policy, users are taking full responsibility for their own use, and the user who is 18 or older or, the parent(s) or guardian(s) of a minor student are agreeing to indemnify and Copan Public Schools, the Data Acquisition Site that provides the computer and Internet access opportunity to the school district and all administrators, teachers, and other staff not liable from any loss, costs, claims, or damages resulting from the user’s access to its computer network and the Internet, including but not limited to any fees or charges incurred through purchases of goods or services by the user. The user or the user’s parent(s) or guardian(s) of a minor agree to cooperate with the school in the event of the school’s initiating an investigation of a user’s misuse of school issued property regardless of physical location of said property.
Users, and if appropriate, the user’s parents/guardians, may be asked from time to time to provide new or
additional registration and account information or to sign a new policy, for example, to reflect developments in the law or technology. Such information must be provided by the user (or his/her parents or guardian) or such new policy must be signed if the user wishes to continue to receive service. If after you have provided your account information, some or all of the information changes, you must notify the person designated by the school to receive such information.
