Danville Community School Corporation is pleased to provide students and staff a wide variety of technology resources. The corporation encourages students and staff to use the resources to promote educational excellence in our schools. The DCSC Acceptable Use Policy provides general guidance concerning the use of school computers and other electronic devices and provides examples of prohibited uses. Students, parents, and school staff who have questions about whether a particular activity is prohibited are encouraged to contact a building administrator. These rules apply to all school computers, all school-provided electronic devices wherever used, all uses of school servers, and Internet access and networks regardless of how they are accessed.

Student Use of the iPad
The iPad is the property of the Danville Community School Corporation and as a result may be seized and reviewed at any time. The student should have NO expectation of privacy of materials found on an iPad or a school supplied or supported email service.
The Danville Community School Corporation iPad is the only approved personal computer allowed. All other computers are not allowed and subject to seizure.
The iPad comes equipped with both a front and rear-facing camera and video capacities. As with all recording devices, it is best practice and common courtesy to ask permission before recording an individual or group. All Danville Community Schools are closed campuses with the Danville Community School Corporation retaining the rights concerning any recording and/or publishing of any student or staff member’s work or image. Students must obtain school permission to publish a photograph or video of any school related activity.
Students are responsible for bringing their iPad to school every day unless otherwise directed by a staff member. Failure to bring an iPad or any other class material(s) does not release the student from their responsibility for class work. If a student repeatedly fails to bring materials to class, including an iPad, the student will be subject to disciplinary action.
The student shall bring their iPad to school fully charged. A student's repeated failure to charge his/her iPad may result in disciplinary action.
While personalized screensavers or backgrounds are permitted, inappropriate or provocative images including but not limited to pornographic images, guns, weapons, inappropriate language, threatening language, drug, alcohol, or gang related images are not permitted and subject to disciplinary action.
A student may download music with the permission of a staff member.
The adding or deleting of an “app” is by staff permission only. Failure to comply may result in restricted access to the iPad and/or a substantial reimage cost to the student.
Games, music, videos, and sound use will be at the discretion of the classroom teacher and building administrator.
The iPad affords limited electronic storage space. As with all electronic files, it is good practice to back up, duplicate, or archive files to an independent storage space.
The Danville Community School iPad is designed as a tool for school work; any uses of the iPad should be limited to school activities.
All students should recognize and guard their personal and private information. While on the Internet, students shall not reveal personal information, including a home address or phone number, or the address or phone numbers of other students.
Danville Community School Corporation encourages students to take their iPad home at night for class work and recharging. All the rules and regulations that are in effect during the school day extend to the use of the iPad at home.
Danville Community School Corporation makes no guarantee, written or implied, that materials on the iPad, including student work, will be safe from deletion or corruption, accidental or otherwise.
