Keeping Students and Staff Safe from Technology Abuse
Ruder, Robert
School Business Affairs, v75 n4 p21-22 Apr 2009
With the number of students who own cellular phones increasing at a dazzling rate, designing a school district-wide multilevel firewall to address electronic intrusions is a prudent course of action. In addition to invading a student's privacy in a locker room or bathroom, students can use camera phones to cheat on tests. Students can photograph a test and send it to fellow students so they know what to study. In this article, the author discusses how to keep students and staff safe from technology abuse. As the use and dependency on technology increase, the practice of updating technology use policies every few years is no longer a viable model. School districts may find it necessary to revise policies related to technology yearly--or even more frequently. Conducting due diligence in this regard will help a district remain current with trends and practices while safeguarding the safety of its students and staff.
