Responsible Use Agreement for Grades K-2
Parent/Guardian: Please read to or with your student.
Using computers or tablets or other electronic devices at school can be fun and help you learn. They can have games, or help you get better at writing or math or reading. We hope they help you learn and grow and share your ideas. It’s also important to remember that they are delicate and can break if we don’t take care of them. Here are some rules that the school has. If you are going to use computers or other electronic devices, you need to agree to follow these rules.
- Protect and Respect School Property. I will be respectful of school technology in my classroom and around the building. It is my responsibility to use school computers, tablets and other devices carefully and keep them safe.
- Protect and Respect Myself. I will only log in to a computer the way my teacher tells me to, and use apps and websites that my teacher says are OK. I won’t go to a web site or use an app if there is anything inappropriate there. I won’t try to log on as anyone else, and I will keep my passwords to myself. I won’t put my name or phone number or address on any website or game unless my teacher or my parent/guardian tells me it is OK. I will only talk or write to other people online if my teacher or parent/guardian tells me it’s OK. If something comes up on my screen that feels wrong or inappropriate, I will tell a teacher right away. I will not bring in or use my own tablet, computer or phone without express permission from the principal.
- Respect Others. I will not use computers or tablets to say unkind things about others, or to bully or tease other people. I will let an adult know if I see others doing something on computers or tablets that they aren’t supposed to. I won’t take a picture or make a recording of anyone unless a teacher tells me it is OK.
- Respect Others’ Ideas. I will make sure not to copy other people’s words or pictures from websites and call it my own. If I use other people’s pictures from web sites, I will check with them or a teacher to make sure it is OK, and then give them credit.
PARENT OR GUARDIAN: As the parent or guardian of this student I have read the Terms and Conditions for use of SPS technology resources (longer, more complex AUP attached). I understand that this access is designed for educational purposes. I understand that the SPS network is in compliance with Child Internet Protection Act, and that filtering and blocking of inappropriate content is part of school access to the Internet. I also recognize that it is impossible for SPS to restrict access to all controversial materials and I will not hold SPS responsible for materials acquired on the network. I accept full responsibility for supervision if and when my child's use is not in a school setting. I hereby give permission to allow access for my child. I further agree to be fully responsible for this agreement signed by my child above. Access may be restricted or removed for any violations of this R.U.A. or the general SPS A.U.P. Parents/guardians may request withdrawal of access at any time by notifying, in writing, the building principal or superintendent of schools.
