B.Y.O.D.

B.Y.O.D. at the Jr/Sr High School

PURPOSE
Here at Riverview JR/Sr High we are committed to moving students and staff forward in a 21st century learning environment. As part of this plan, RJSHS has a plan that will allow students and staff to access our guest wireless network using their own technology tools (laptops, Smart Phones, iPads etc.) during the learning day. With classroom teacher approval, students may use their own devices in the classroom to access and save information from the Internet, communicate with other learners (via email) and use the productivity tools that may be currently loaded on the device (Microsoft Word, Power Point etc.).

PLAN
Students may bring their own technology tools to school. Users will be prompted to accept the following terms of use prior to each attempt at connecting to the RSD guest network:

The Riverview School District Internet Access Service allows students and visitors to connect to the Internet. The Service is monitored by the districts content filter. The Service uses resources that are shared with many others. Moreover, the Service provides access to the Internet, which is used by millions of other users. Each user benefits by being able to share resources and communicate almost effortlessly with other members of the user community. However, as with any community, the benefits and privileges available from the Service, and the Internet in general, must be balanced with duties and responsibilities so that other users can also have a productive experience. Each user of the RSD Guest Internet Access Service is responsible for ensuring that the use of all Services provided to them complies with these districts Acceptable Use Policy (Board Policy #815). ANY USER WHO DOES NOT AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS SHOULD IMMEDIATELY STOP USE OF THE SERVICE

Students, staff, or parents who do not accept the terms of service, will not be able to access the RSD Network. The terms of service prompt will post each time an outside user attempts to use this network. Once on the guest network, all users will have filtered Internet access just as they would on a district owned device. All teacher users will be filtered at the student level when using personal technology devices.

Procedures and guidelines are located in both the Jr. High and Sr. High Student Handbooks (available for download from the Jr/Sr High webpage). Please see our FAQ document or contact Mr. Hewitt at 412-828-1800 x1022 or ehewitt@rsd.k12.pa.us with any other questions.
