Computer Usage

Guidelines & Policies

GSTC makes a variety of communications and information technologies available to students through computer/network/Internet access. These technologies, when properly used, promote educational excellence by facilitating resource sharing, innovation, and communication. Illegal, unethical, or inappropriate use of these technologies can have dramatic consequences, harming the District, its students, and its employees.

 

All students are bound by all portions of the Responsible Use Guidelines, available on the ECSD website (www.escambiaschools.org). A student who knowingly violates any portion of the Responsible Use Guidelines will be subject to suspension of access and/or revocation of privileges on the District's system and will be subject to disciplinary action, including administrative withdrawal from school.

 

Example of inappropriate use include, but not limited to:

  • Modification of computer
  • Transmitting confidential information
  • Vandalism/mischief
  • Copyright violations
  • Illegally accessing or hacking violation
  • Circumventing or compromising security
  • System interference/alteration
  • Plagiarism
