Technology resources, including, but not limited to, email, Internet access, school computers and tablets, and the use of personal electronic portable devices on school grounds or at school-sponsored events, are to be used for educational purposes only. Adherence to the Student Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) is required for all students’ continued access to these technology resources.
To fulfill the state and federal Internet safety laws, and as the parent or guardian of this student, I understand that access to the Internet at school or school-sponsored events is designed for educational purposes. I further understand that the Oxnard Union High School District (OUHSD) has taken precautions to block inappropriate and/or controversial material through content filters. However, I recognize that it is impossible for the OUHSD to completely restrict access to inappropriate materials. I will not hold the OUHSD responsible for materials acquired through the Internet and/or related networks.
I understand that all OUHSD schools will include a Digital Literacy program at all grade levels so that every student will learn how to be safe, appropriate, and responsible online, both at home and at school. As the parent/guardian, I understand that I am responsible for supervising my child’s use of technology, including the use of personal electronic devices and social networking, outside of the school setting.
It is the responsibility of the student, and his/her parent/guardian, to protect the security of any user names and passwords the student and/or parent uses. The OUHSD accepts no responsibility in the event a student and/or parent’s/guardian’s user name and/or password is shared, stolen, or in any other way becomes the possession of a person other that the student or parent.
Parents/guardians need to remember that email and other communications over the Internet are not guaranteed to be private and are subject to state and federal laws.
Violations of the rules stated above may result in disciplinary action, including the loss of the student’s privileges, suspension, and/or possible supervision and monitoring of a student’s continued use of any devices involved in a violation of the AUP.
School and District authorized employees monitor the use of information technology resources to help ensure that technology resources are used securely and in conformity with this policy.
Administrators reserve the right to confiscate, examine, and disclose any information and/or data found on a student’s device in order to further the health, safety, discipline, or security of any student or other person, or to protect property. They may also use this information in disciplinary actions and will furnish evidence of crime to law enforcement.
