It's on the Line: Tech Policies that Make Sense
Calhoun, Kelly J.
Leadership, v42 n2 p12-14 Nov-Dec 2012
ACSA (Association of California School Administrators), the CSBA (California School Boards Association), the California Educational Technology Professionals Association, the Santa Clara County Office of Education, CUE (Computer Using Educators), the law firm Fagen, Friedman & Fulfrost and others have joined forces to develop policies that can be used by all districts to guide student and staff behavior, both online and off. "ON[the]LINE" is a new statewide effort that seeks to provide relief to beleaguered districts, county offices of education and others, bringing together a suite of resources they can use to either adopt new, CSBA-approved policies in alignment with this approach, or adapt existing local policies in alignment with the initiative's guidelines. It will also provide help in the development of local technology use guidelines, professional development and more. ON[the]LINE is built upon understanding a simple principle about technology use today and why the old approach doesn't work any more.
