GCSA-EMPLOYEE COMPUTER AND INTERNET USE
EMPLOYEE COMPUTER AND INTERNET USE
M.S.A D. #11 provides computers, school computer services to support the educational mission of the schools and to enhance curriculum and learning opportunities for students and school staff.
Employees are to utilize the District’s computers, desk equipment, and school computer services (including email) for school-related purposes and performance of job duties. Incidental personal use of school computers is permitted as long as such use does not interfere with the employee’s job duties and performance, with system operations, or other system users. “Incidental personal use” is defined as use by an individual employee for occasional personal communications. Employees are reminded that such personal use must comply with this policy and all other applicable policies, procedures, and rules.
Employees may be allowed to use privately owned computers at school with prior authorization (authorization will require the employee to provide the school all information necessary on privately owned computers, including MAC addresses, for the school to monitor, review and have access to the employee’s use of school computer services) provided that they comply with this policy and all related rules.
Any employee who violates this policy and/or any rules governing use of the District’s computers will be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including discharge. Illegal uses of the District’s computers will also result in referral to law enforcement authorities.
All MSAD #11 computers and school computer services remain under the control, custody, and supervision of the District. MSAD #11 reserves the right to monitor all computer, and school computer services by employees. Employees have no expectation of privacy in their use of school computers and equipment.
The Superintendent shall be responsible for overseeing the implementation of this policy and the accompanying rules and for advising the Board of the need for any future amendments or revisions to the policy/rules. The Superintendent may develop additional administrative procedures/rules governing the day-to-day management and operations of the District’s computer system and equipment as long as they are consistent with the Board’s policy/rules. The Superintendent may delegate specific responsibilities to the director of technology, building principals, and others as he/she deems appropriate.
