For students, the privilege of Internet access holds responsibilities.
Pius XI staff will provide guidance and instruction in the appropriate use of the Internet to support educational goals. A student’s disregard for the rules of acceptable use will result in a loss of the privilege of Internet access and/or use of school computers.
Network storage areas may be treated like school lockers.
The computers and networks remain the property of the school. The school reserves the right to open any file or folder stored on the network as it deems necessary.
Furthermore, the school reserves the right to monitor, both physically and electronically, all activities on the network. Additionally, the school reserves the right to monitor all inbound and outbound emails for viruses, profanity, offensive language, racist and/or sexual comments, bullying or harassment, virus hoaxes, chain-mail, and known spam mailers.
Network accounts are to be used only by the authorized owner of the account for the authorized purpose. Users shall not intentionally seek information on, obtain copies of, or modify files, other data, or passwords belonging to other users, or misrepresent other users on the networks or email.
Students are expected to respect the privacy of other users. At no time may students voice record, video record, or photograph anyone without his/her consent.
Unauthorized attempts to access another person’s email, or similar electronic communications or to use another’s name, email or computer address or workstation to send email or similar electronic communications is prohibited. All other Internet access will be at the discretion of the I.T. Coordinator and School Administration.
Additionally, rogue devices such as routers, access points, switches, network scanners, laptops used for scanning, hacking, cracking, broadcasting, or any other inappropriate action may be seized.
Students may bring up to two devices to school.
