Responsible Use Policy

Carmel Clay Schools believes accessing content on the Internet is essential to fully prepare students for their careers and lives. The goal in providing access to the Internet and other technology to staff and students is to promote educational excellence by facilitating instruction, collaboration, innovation, and communication both during in-person learning and virtual learning. The Corporation’s students and employees accessing the Internet are representing the Corporation and therefore have a responsibility to use the Internet in a productive manner that meets the ethical standards of an educational institution. 

It is the joint responsibility of students, parents, and employees of the Corporation to ensure the appropriate and effective use of technology to both enhance the quality of student learning and the efficiency of Corporation operations. The smooth and reliable operation of the Corporation’s technological resources is dependent upon the proper conduct of the end-users who must adhere to stated policies and guidelines.

Use of any and all technological resources is a privilege, not a right, and as such, users take seriously the responsibilities associated with signing the CCS user agreement. Inappropriate use may result in a cancellation of some or all privileges and/or another appropriate discipline. The Corporation reserves the right to read, print, delete, store, or use any transmission on this system at its discretion and grants permission to use this system for educational purposes only.
