Our goal in providing these services is to enhance the educational development of our students. Appropriate uses of technology are devoted to activities that support teaching and learning. The following are our agreements about the use of technology in the Elementary schools of Weber District:

Terms of Agreement

  1. I promise to use the computer carefully.
  2. I promise to only work on the programs and web pages that my teacher tells me to use.
  3. I promise to ask for help if I don’t know what to do.

Use of New Web Tools

As part of 21st century learning, teachers and students will be using new Web tools such as blogs, wikis, 
podcasts, and videocasts. These technologies improve student communication and collaboration skills, provide a real audience, and extend learning beyond the classroom walls while building digital citizenship skills. At some point during the school year, you may be asked to sign additional permission forms regarding the Use of New Web Tools.

Appropriate Use

Written by

Sign the AUP

Weber School District is committed to ensuring a safe environment for student and employee computer usage. The Appropriate Use Policy (AUP) governs the usage of the computers in the district. Everyone using a district computer is required to abide by the rules set forth in the AUP.

Key Points of the Appropriate Use Policy

  1. Your use of the computer should be appropriate to your role in Weber School District. In other words, your use of technology should be consistent with the educational and support responsibilities of your job (i.e. Teacher, Administrator and Classified Employee).
  2. It is both an AUP violation and a Class B misdemeanor to intentionally and knowingly access pornography from any Weber School District computer including laptops.
  3. All Weber School District web activity and email communication is filtered and logged. Consequently, Weber District users of computers and computer services should have no expectation of privacy in their use of these technologies.
  4. All Students will be monitored and supervised as they use WSD technology, including computers and computer labs.
  5. Violations of the AUP are handled aggressively and may result in suspension from school for students, and job actions (including possible termination) for staff, as circumstances warrant.
  6. Employees must exercise reasonable care to safeguard access to their computer(s) from other individuals including students. Passwords must be kept secure and changed as needed. Students must not be allowed to use the computer assigned for teacher use.

Appropriate Use Policy

The Appropriate Use Policy is the agreement between the district, the students, and the staff, and determines which computer activities are appropriate. Usage of the computers should always be appropriate to one's role in the district. Failure to adhere to the Appropriate Use Policy will result in disciplinary action.
