Acceptable Use of Technology Agreement - Students and Parents/Guardians
The use of electronic devices is now a part of daily life for most students. These devices can help student learning and engage students in the classroom. Our school uses electronic devices such as computers, interactive whiteboards, tablets and other mobile devices in the classroom to enhance academic achievement and help motivate students. Through the use of the school's network, access to learning resources and applications (apps) help all students meet learning objectives.
To help protect all students, proper use guidelines and practices for these devices must be established, followed and monitored.
All parents/guardians must sign an Acceptable Use of Technology Agreement prior to students being permitted to use/access technology and online resources at school. The purpose of the agreement is to:
1. Ensure students and parents/guardians are aware of the conditions under which students are permitted to use technology;
2. Outline expectations and responsibilities of students and appropriate and inappropriate use of technology.
We ask parents and guardians to monitor use and to discuss these regulations and the proper use of technology with their children and we thank you for your support.
A copy of the agreement is available for review and download from the student tab of the school website. Completed agreements should be returned to the student’s teacher or the main office.
Lockdown/Secure School Procedures
Please note that in the event of a lockdown regular school procedures change totally. At the school we are unable to answer phones or the door. Essentially there is to be no one in or out during a lockdown. When it is possible, there will be communication with parents/guardians through Synrevoice, twitter or another mass communication method, although even this may not always be immediately possible. During a lockdown parents are NOT come to the school even though you may be aware that a lockdown is in progress. This is in the best interest of everyone’s safety as police will be securing the school. Similar to monthly fire drills, St. Kevin's practices lockdown drills periodically through the school year.
