Saint John Vianney High School (SJVHS) provides computer equipment, computer services, and Internet access to its students and staff for educational purposes only. The purpose of providing technology resources is to improve learning and teaching through research, teacher training, collaboration, dissemination and the use of global communication resources. The system administrators are employees of SJVHS and reserve the right to monitor all activity on network facilities.
Because of the complex association between so many government agencies and networks, the student/user of these networks must adhere to strict guidelines. They are provided here so that staff, community, users, students, and the parents/guardians of students are aware of their responsibilities. SJVHS may modify these rules at any time by publishing modified rule(s) on the system. The signatures at the end of this document are legally binding and indicate that the parties have read the terms and conditions carefully, understand their significance, and agree to abide by established rules.
Information Content and Uses of the System
The user agrees not to publish on or over the system any information which violates or infringes upon the right of any other person, or which would be abusive, profane or sexually offensive to an average person, or which, without the approval of the system administrators, contains any advertising or any solicitation of other members to use goods or services. The user agrees not to use the facilities and capabilities of the system to conduct any business or solicit the performance of any activity which is prohibited by law.
Because SJVHS provides, through connection to the Internet, access to other computer systems around the world, students and their parents understand that the school and system administrators have no control over content. While most of the content available on the Internet is innocuous and much of it a valuable educational resource, some objectionable material exists. SJVHS will provide student access to Internet resources only in supervised environments. Students and their parents/guardians are advised that some systems may contain defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, racially offensive, or otherwise illegal material. SJVHS and the system administrators do not condone the use of such materials and do not permit usage of such materials in the school environment. Students knowingly bringing such materials into the school environment will be dealt with according to the discipline policies of SJVHS, and such activities may result in termination of the students’ use of the network and all computer facilities.
Any action by a user that is determined by a system administrator to constitute an inappropriate use of network resources or to improperly restrict or inhibit other members from using and enjoying those resources is strictly prohibited and may result in termination of an offending users’ right to use these resources and other action in compliance with SJVHS’s discipline code. The user specifically agrees not to submit, publish, or display any defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, racially offensive, or otherwise illegal material; nor shall a user encourage the use, sale, or distribution of controlled substances. Transmission of material, information or software in violation over the network and/or Internet will result in
