Acceptable Use of Technology
While there are some built-in protections on the student computers, students are still responsible for their behavior. The Student Rights and Responsibilities document describes acceptable use of Technology. Here is the wording from the 2019/2019 version, to be updated when the new document is published:

The district believes that the valuable information and interaction available on the Internet outweighs the possibility of harm from users procuring material that is not consistent with the educational goals of the Puyallup School District. With access to computers and people all over the world comes the availability of material that may not be considered to be of educational value in the school. 
 
Please be aware that questionable materials that are not appropriate for this age may be available to inquisitive students even though the district has a filtering program and teacher supervision. 
 
Personal laptops, e-readers, tablets, cell phones and other technological devices have a place in the educational setting. Misuse would constitute a disruption of the educational process. The following guidelines apply to these technology devices: 
 
• The student/parent assumes all risks/liability in the event of loss, theft or damage. • Teacher permission must be granted before using in class. • Devices are to be stored out of sight and silenced     when not in approved use or they may be confiscated. 
 
Students are not to use technology devices including, but not limited to, cameras, cell phones, portable entertainment systems or other devices in a manner that disrupts the educational process, invades the privacy or rights or others, or violates district policy or school rules.  Use of technology devices to take photos or video will not be permitted in bathrooms or locker rooms. Elementary Only-Cell phone use is not permitted during recess or lunch without admin permission. 
 
Possession or distribution of passwords other than the student’s own is prohibited. Distribution of knowledge (such as passwords or techniques) that may assist another person in damaging the network or

inappropriately accessing material is also prohibited. 
 
Students who violate this technology section subject to discipline up to and including restitution and/or suspension or expulsion. Personal devices used inappropriately or without permission may be confiscated. Gaining access to a computer system or electronic database of another person is considered computer trespass (RCW 9A.52.110 and RCW 9A.52.120). Law enforcement officials may be contacted and the student may be charged with a felony.
