Online and Digital Behaviors
Students and staff are expected to abide by the generally accepted rules of network etiquette (appropriate and courteous behavior) both on and off campus. These include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Be polite. Never send, or encourage others to send, abusive messages or pictures that might embarrass or be hurtful.
- Use appropriate language. Do not swear, use vulgarities, or any other inappropriate language, material or images. Illegal activities of any kind are strictly forbidden. Remember that you are a representative of our school and responsible for your own reputation. You may be alone with your computer, but what you say and do can be viewed globally! And deleting something doesn't mean it goes away, it may appear on multiple other sites without your understanding or consent.
- Privacy. Do not reveal your full name, phone number, home address or sensitive information, or those of other persons, when using the Internet.
- Electronic mail. Email is not guaranteed to be private. Network or other computer use or storage areas are and will be treated as school property. Computers, files and communications may be accessed and reviewed by administrative personnel and may be accessed by other computer users. Messages relating to, or in support of, illegal activities must be reported to the authorities. Only use your CAJ assigned email to contact CAJ staff.
- Do not use computers, digital devices or the network in such a way that you would disrupt the use by other people.
- Use of CAJ's network or digital resources to download or run illegal programs, content (music, videos), or to access inappropriate or age restricted sites is strictly forbidden. Permission of a supervising staff member must be obtained before downloading large files or installing programs to a computer.
