The Board authorizes the creation of web sites by employees and students of the Corporation to be published on the World Wide Web. The creation of web sites by students must be done under the supervision of a professional staff member. These web sites must reflect the professional image of the Corporation, its employees, and students.  The content of all pages must be consistent with the Corporation’s Mission Statement.
The purpose of such web sites is to educate, inform, and communicate. The following criteria should be used to guide the development of such web sites.
  1. Educate
Content provided in web sites should be suitable for and usable by students and teachers to support the curriculum and Corporation’s Objectives as listed in the Corporation’s Strategic Plan.
  1. Inform
Content may inform the community about the school, teachers, students or departments, including information about curriculum, events, class projects, student activities, and departmental policies.
  1. Communicate
Content may provide an avenue to communicate with the community.
The information contained on the web site should reflect and support the Corporation’s Mission Statement, Educational Philosophy, and the Academic Improvement Process.
The Board shall permit the use of educational materials, programs, and equipment which contains commercial messages providing the content of such messages and the manner of presentation has been approved by the Superintendent or designee and is in compliance with Board Policy and Administrative Guidelines.
Parent/Guardian permission must be obtained before use of a photograph, or before displaying personal or contact information relating to a student.  Student’s first name only may be used on the corporation web page. Students who want their class work to be displayed on the Board’s web site must have written parent permission and expressly license its display without cost to the Board.
All links included on the pages must also meet the above criteria and comply with State and Federal law (e.g. copyright laws, Children’s Internet Protection Act).
