Electronic/ Cell Phone Policy
Computers, tablets, phones, and other electronic devices provide valuable opportunities for research, curriculum support, and career development. CECP offers Internet access to its students through school computers and WIFI. The primary purpose of providing access to the Internet is to support the educational mission of CECP. CECP expects that students will use this access in a manner consistent with this purpose. While the Internet is a tremendous resource for electronic information, it has the potential for abuse.
CECP makes no guarantees, implied or otherwise, regarding the factual reliability of data available over the Internet. Users of CECP’s Internet service assume full responsibility for any costs, liabilities, or damages arising from the way they choose to use their access to the Internet.
CECP has installed special filtering software in an effort to block access to material that is not appropriate for school. Students will have access to computers throughout the day in the student work area and WIFI access throughout the building on personal devices for use while not in a class. Students may NOT use a personal device during class for any reason unless specifically directed to do so by a staff member. Any use of a personal device during class time (this includes inside and outside of the classroom) or inappropriate use at any other time may result in immediate confiscation of the device and possible level 1 or level 2 consequences.
Prohibited Behaviors include but are not limited to:
Privacy Users should not have an expectation of privacy or confidentiality in the content of electronic communications or other computer files sent and received on the school computer network or stored in the user's directory or on a disk drive.
CECP reserves the right to examine all stored data involved in the user's use of CECP’s Internet service. Internet messages are public communication and are not private. All communications including text and images may be disclosed to law enforcement or other third parties without prior consent of the sender or the receiver. Network administrators may review communications to maintain integrity system-wide and ensure that users are using the system responsibly. Violations
Access to CECP's computer and/or network is a privilege, not a right. CECP reserves the right to deny, revoke, or suspend specific user privileges and/or to take other disciplinary action, up to and including expulsion for violations of this policy. The school will advise appropriate law enforcement agencies of illegal activities conducted through CECP’s computers and/or network. The school will also cooperate fully with local, state, and federal officials in any investigation related to illegal activities perpetrated at the school or on school equipment or network.
