Accessing the Network

We are a 1:1 technology for our students or have mobile carts available. Our student internet use policy is for USD #379 provided devices. We do not have a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device).

Students are not allowed to bring their own devices e.g. computer, iPad, to school.

Our network is protected and the Director of Technology monitors suspicious activity. A student violating the Student Internet Use Policy is subject to loss of network, privileges, and any other disciplinary options or legal actions.

Staff members shall be responsible for displaying appropriate behavior and maintaining a productive learning environment when using district computers, networks, the Internet, and other online services as outlined in the Staff Acceptable Use Policy.

  2. Have their operating system patched with the latest critical updates.

  3. Have their machine clean of spy-ware, viruses, Trojans, worms, and malware.

Authorized guests who connect to our network who do not have the above installed, or who have an infected or compromised computer, will be blocked from accessing the school network.
