Acceptable Use of Technology
The use of Burnsville-Eagan-Savage Public Schools technology resources is a privilege, not a right. The privilege of using the technology resources provided by the district is not transferable or extendible by students to people or groups outside the district and terminates when a student is no longer enrolled in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage Public Schools. This policy is provided to make all users aware of the responsibilities associated with ethical, and lawful use of technology resources. If a person violates any of the user terms and conditions named in this document, as well as the District Acceptable Use Policy, privileges may be terminated, access to the school district technology resources may be denied, and the appropriate disciplinary action shall be applied. The Burnsville-Eagan-Savage Public Schools’ Student Discipline policy shall be applied to all student infractions. Student violations may result in disciplinary action up to and including suspension/expulsion for students. When applicable, law enforcement agencies may be involved.
Failure to comply with the district policies or the guidelines stated in this document for care and use of the device may result in the loss of the privilege to take the device home or use the device in general.
More Information can be found in the Student Handbook. Specific policies that apply:
- Bullying Prohibition Policy (#514)
- Electronic Technologies Acceptable Use Policy (#634)
- Student Discipline Policy (#506)
Cameras and Microphone
The device comes equipped with audio and video recording capabilities through a built-in microphone and cameras. All electronic recordings created with the device must comply with District Policies and State and Federal Laws.
Use of the device and any other device with audio and video recording capabilities during instructional time is at the discretion of the teacher. Any electronic recordings obtained with the recording device are for instructional/educational purposes and individual use. Therefore, electronic recordings obtained with the device may not be shared, published or re-broadcasted for any reason by the student without permission. Furthermore, users of the device should be aware that state and federal laws in many instances prohibit secret or surreptitious recording undertaken without the knowledge and consent of the person or persons being recorded. Violations of state and federal recording laws may be reported to the proper authorities and may result in criminal prosecution.
Student safety, both in school and at home, is a priority and the District Technology Department takes all necessary precautions to ensure the safety of our students. We follow the Federal Communications Commission’s Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) laws regarding internet safety. Under CIPA, schools are required to filter or block internet access to obscene content, pornography, and other sites harmful to minors.
Burnsville-Eagan-Savage Public Schools filters internet access from district-owned devices through firewalls and the Securly filtering system. Securly maintains the same filtering for the Chromebooks whether they are used in district or in a location outside the district such as at a student’s home. Filtering levels vary based on student grade.
Students will be using their One91 student account to access learning resources daily. It is important to keep this password confidential. Students may change their password through our district’s single sign on (SSO).
We are always looking for ways to improve our school climate, increase student learning, and partner with parents. If you have any questions or concerns regarding filtering, please contact the District Technology Director at 952-707-2065.
