  3. What is an AUP? • A written agreement outlining the terms and conditions of internet use • Identifies acceptable and unacceptable behavior when using technology at school • Lists consequences that will be enforced if AUP is violated • Gives rules for online safety for the school or school district

  4. AUP Components • Releases school of responsibility for any inappropriate actions taken by users within the school network • Remind users that it is a privilege not a right to use the internet • AUP’s are bound by state and national telecommunications and regulations • Parents are responsible for monitoring student internet behavior at home For more information visit Virginia Department of Education

  5. Why an AUP is Needed • If guidelines are followed then students are protected from harmful things on the internet • Learn acceptable internet behavior • Teachers and schools are not liable for inappropriate internet use • Sense of security for parents, teachers, and schools

  6. Parent Permission • Signatures of parents, students, and teachers bind them to the rules laid out by the Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) For an example of an AUP for Elementary School students visit Alamance-Burlington School System

  7. Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) • Enacted April 21, 2000 • Backed by the Federal Trade Commission • Parental permission is needed for the release of personal information on the internet of children under the age of 13 • Teachers may act as a parent in giving consent for the release of personal information

  8. Roles of a Parent/Teacher • Ask to see information that is being presented to the child • Be informed about websites their children are visiting • May revoke consent at any time and have child’s information deleted • Warn students about chatrooms, instant messaging, and inappropriate websites • Teachers have same responsibility for a child’s safety while in school as parents do at home For more information visit Kidz Privacy- Adults Only

  9. Student Photo and Work Permission Forms • Parental consent is needed to post student work or photos online • Parents need to consider that the teacher cannot control who views that website • Teachers limit the amount of personal information online • For example, only the first name of the student would be used For an example see Mrs. Perkins’ classroom website parental forms

  10. Benefits of Publishing Photos/Work Online • Students can show off their work • Students practice internet computer skills to look at work • Relatives and friends can see the progress of students • Easy communication between classroom and home To visit an “online classroom,” visit Mrs. Perkins First Grade
