Computer / Internet Policy

Internet access is provided for educational purposes only. Students may use the Internet only after parents have signed a consent form. 

The Catoosa County Schools Board of Education recognizes that an effective public education system develops students who are globally aware, civically engaged, and capable of managing their lives and careers. The board also believes that students need to be proficient users of information, media, and technology to succeed in a digital world.

Therefore, the Catoosa County Public School district will use electronic resources as a powerful and compelling means for students to learn core subjects and applied skills in relevant and rigorous ways. It is the district’s goal to provide students with rich and ample opportunities to use technology for important purposes in schools just as individuals in workplaces and other real-life settings. The district’s technology will enable educators and students to communicate, learn, share, collaborate and create, to think and solve problems, to manage their work, and to take ownership of their lives.

The school will provide guidance and instruction to students in the appropriate use of Internet resources.  Students are expected to follow legal, ethical, and school rules regarding use of the Internet.  Students who fail to abide by such rules may be subject to disciplinary action as set forth in the Catoosa County Public Schools discipline policy.
