    Definitions

    Key terms are as defined in the Children’s Internet Protection Act.


    Access to Inappropriate Material

    To the extent practical, technology protection measures (or “Internet filters”) shall be used to block or filter Internet, or other forms of electronic communications, access to inappropriate information.


    Specifically, as required by the Children’s Internet Protection Act, blocking shall be applied to visual depictions of material deemed obscene or child pornography, or to any material deemed harmful to minors.
    Subject to staff supervision, technology protection measures may be disabled for adults or, in the case of minors, minimized only for bona fide research or other lawful purposes.
    Inappropriate Network Usage
    To the extent practical, steps shall be taken to promote the safety and security of users of the Jefferson Davis County School District online computer network when using electronic mail, chat rooms, instant messaging, and other forms of direct electronic communications.
    Specifically, as required by the Children’s Internet Protection Act, prevention of inappropriate network usage includes: (a) unauthorized access, including so-called ‘hacking,’ and other unlawful activities; and (b) unauthorized disclosure, use, and dissemination of personal identification information regarding minors.
    Education, Supervision and Monitoring
    It shall be the responsibility of all members of the Jefferson Davis County School District staff to educate, supervise and monitor appropriate usage of the online computer network and access to the Internet in accordance with this policy, the Children’s Internet Protection Act, the Neighborhood Children’s Internet Protection Act, and the Protecting Children in the 21st Century Act.
    Procedures for the disabling or otherwise modifying any technology protection measures shall be the responsibility of The Technology Director or designated representatives.
