Chromebook Student/Parent User Agreement
Part Two: Website & Social Media Guidelines
Think before you act because your virtual actions are real and permanent!
Be aware of what you post online. Website and social media venues are very public. What you contribute leaves a digital footprint for all to see. Do not post anything you wouldn’t want friends, enemies, parents, teachers, future colleges, or employers to see. (THINK, Is it True, Helpful, Inspiring, Necessary, Kind?)
Follow the school’s code of conduct when writing online. It is acceptable to disagree with other’s opinions; however, do it in a respectful way. Make sure that criticism is constructive and not hurtful. What is inappropriate in the classroom is inappropriate online.
Be safe online. Never give out personal information, including, but not limited to, last names, phone numbers, addresses, exact birth dates, and pictures. Do not share your password with anyone besides your teachers and parents.
Linking to other websites to support your thoughts and ideas is recommended. However, be sure to read and review the entire website prior to linking to ensure that all information is appropriate for a school setting.
Do your own work! Do not use other people’s intellectual property without their permission. Be aware that it is a violation of copyright law to copy and paste other’s thoughts. (Plagiarism) It is good practice to hyperlink to your sources.
Be aware that pictures may also be protected under copyright laws. Verify that you have permission to use the image or that it is under Creative Commons attribution.
How you represent yourself online is an extension of yourself. Do not misrepresent yourself by using someone else’s identity.
Online work should be well written. Follow writing conventions including proper grammar, capitalization, and punctuation. If you edit someone else’s work, be sure it is in the spirit of improving the writing.
If you run across inappropriate material that makes you feel uncomfortable or is not respectful, tell your teacher right away.
Students are not allowed to change any Chrome settings without teacher permission. Only tool/apps setting changes are allowed.
Students will have access to YouTube. They are expected to use it for school provided/related links only.
