Responsible Use Policy for Grades K-2

The Bright School is committed to the use of technology in the academic program as a tool to enhance the educational development of our students. The Bright School provides network access for students, faculty, staff and administration. Our goal is to promote educational excellence by facilitating research, resource sharing, communication and innovation. All network access is expected to support education and research and to be consistent with the educational goals of The Bright School.

The use of the network is a privilege, not a right, and inappropriate use or use in violation of this policy will result in the loss of these privileges or other disciplinary actions determined by a school administrator.  The Responsible Use Policy is designed to give students and their families clear and concise guidelines regarding the appropriate use of the school’s technology, including computers, printers, software, and the Internet.  

Using the computer correctly and responsibly is very important. Parents of students in grades K-2 are asked to review these rules with their children. Students are asked to sign and return the form to the school. 

I promise to follow these rules:

  1. I promise to use the computer carefully.  
  2. I promise to only work on the programs or web pages that my teacher tells me to use.
  3. I promise to ask for help if I don’t know what to do.
  4. I promise to tell my teacher, the technology director, or other adult administrator if I read or see something on the computer that is inappropriate.  The Bright School takes reasonable steps to provide a safe online environment.  The school subscribes to a web content filtering service that blocks the majority of inappropriate sites.
  5. I promise never to use the computer to be hurtful to others.
  6. I promise to print only when my teacher tells me to. 
  7. I promise to only use my name and password.  I will not use another person’s name and password.  I promise not to share my password.
  8. I promise never to draw pictures or write words using the computer that I would not want my parents or teacher to see.
  9. I promise not to give out my personal information, such as my full name, address, telephone number, school address, or send a picture of myself without my teacher or parent’s approval.
  10. I promise not to meet or agree to get together with anyone I have communicated with through the Internet without my parent’s knowledge and approval.
  11. I promise if I receive any messages on the computer that are mean or make me feel uncomfortable, I will tell my teacher immediately.
