MCPS 1:1 initiative provides a device for all of our students and teachers. In order to maintain the quality and functionality of our equipment, you must be responsible for its care. The following protocols are designed to keep devices in working order for all. Please familiarize yourself with these guidelines and make it a habit of practice.
Understand that the MCPS does not have control over information found on the Internet. While every attempt is made to block access from inappropriate material the best protection is a teacher/guardian/parent supervision. Parents/Guardians and students are required to read, understand, and agree to the MCPS Responsible Use Policy.
The Common Sense Family Media Agreement is a checklist parents can use to guide conversations with their student about media use. It helps parents establish guidelines and expectations around media use and behavior that are right for their family. Parents and kids get on the same page about media and technology use: Together.
In accordance with the District’s Acceptable Use Policy, outside of school: Parents are responsible for monitoring their student’s use of the District’s educational technologies, including school-issued email accounts and the Internet if the student is accessing the District’s electronic technologies from home or through other remote location(s).
