Computer network resources, provided by the Clark County School District, enable communication with electronic communities around the world. These computer network resources include Internet, e-mail, mainframe, and all other Internet service providers when used in an educational setting.
The use of these electronic resources shall be consistent with the purpose, mission, and goals of the Clark County School District and used for professional or educational purposes. The purpose in providing these services is to facilitate access to information and resources, promote educational excellence, and
enhance communication between schools and the community.
The Internet is a network connecting thousands of computers throughout the world. The Internet can bring a wealth of educational material to the classroom, but may also contain material that is objectionable. The Clark County School District filters web sites believed to be inappropriate for students. However,
no filtering system is perfect. The District cannot and does not represent that inappropriate or objectionable material can be completely filtered. Parent(s) and guardian(s) must consider this in deciding whether to permit their children access to the District’s computer network resources.
This Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) is provided so that staff, students, and members of the community using the District’s computer network resources are aware of their responsibilities. The use of these network resources is a privilege, not a right.
The use of computer network technology resources shall be consistent with all Clark County School District policies and regulations including, but not limited to, 3990, 3991.
Students will receive access to the District’s network resources unless a parent/guardian explicitly indicates the student should not have access to the District network resources. All staff will receive access to the District’s network resources upon employment.
