Specific access may vary but each of the above is a privilege
available to students and staff in the Fox C-6 School District through
Fox C-6, and MORENet, a state-funded educational Internet access
provider. The goal of the Fox C-6 School District in providing Internet,
E-mail and computer access to students and staff is to promote
educational excellence by facilitating resource sharing, research,
innovation, and communication. Students are considered minors so we
target our efforts for minors.
Along with national and international access to computers, people,
and information that is valuable to the education process comes the
availability of material that is not considered of educational value and
is offensive to individuals in a school setting. Fox C-6 School
District "attempts" to take precautions to restrict access to
inappropriate materials by teaching students and staff responsible
Internet use, and through the utilization of "filtering" software to
block student and staff access to inappropriate materials. Participating
in hacking, cyber-bullying, downloading video and music files, chat
rooms, (free e-mail for students and instant message services) and
giving out personal information is construed as inappropriate behavior.
Use of the Fox C-6 School District Internet connection is an
educational privilege. Inappropriate use of computers, software, E-mail
or the Internet connection will result in cancellation of those
privileges. Before being allowed to access the Internet, or E-mail, or
use computers, students and staff will review and sign the Acceptable
Internet, E-mail and Computer Use Policy. Attempting to view pornography
or any inappropriate use of the Internet or computers may result in
disciplinary actions for students and staff. Internet access and E-mail
is not provided for selling and buying personal items.
All of the above activities may be monitored. A log of activity is created that tracks usage.
