Student Use of Internet

Purpose
The Board supports the right of students (regular or extended school students) to have reasonable access to various information formats and believes it incumbent upon students to use this privilege in an appropriate and responsible manner.

Electronic information research skills are now fundamental to preparation of citizens and future employees. The Board expects staff to blend thoughtful use of such information throughout the curriculum and to provide guidance and instruction to students in the appropriate use of such resources.

Students shall abide by MCS Board Policies, and stipulations of the Children’s Online Protection Act 47 USC Section 231 (COPPA), the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), and the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) as well as laws pertaining to stalking and harassment. The policy is promulgated so as to be in compliance with the public records laws of the State of Tennessee.
