Internet and Computer Acceptable Use Policy
The Rockland BOCES Board of Education is committed to the optimization of student learning and teaching. The Board considers computers to be a valuable tool for education, and encourages the use of computers and computer-related technology in agency classrooms. The Board encourages computer use as an integral part of the curriculum, and the Board believes that the use of software applications, online databases, online course materials, appropriate interactive curriculum based web applications, web and video-conferencing, and Internet research tools significantly enhance a student’s educational experience.
At Rockland BOCES, computers and Internet access are for educational purposes only, and students/staff are expected to respect that privilege, as well as all copyright and licensing agreements. It is prohibited to use Rockland BOCES resources to access, download, create, display or disseminate anything that may be considered obscene, racist, sexist, offensive, threatening or contributing to the creation of a hostile work environment. There should be no expectation of privacy in regard to information received, transmitted, or created on Rockland BOCES equipment.
The use of computers and access to the Rockland BOCES digital network is a privilege, not a right. Unacceptable use may result in cancellation of the privilege for any user, whether that user is a student, a staff member, or a community member.
