7540 Network and Internet Acceptable Use

Current version

The Carmel Clay Schools provide network and Internet {hereafter referred to as Network} access to


  1. support the achievement of Indiana academic standards
  2. enhance the development of 21st Century skills
  3. provide access to information
  4. encourage innovation and creativity


Network access is a privilege, not a right, and as such, users take seriously the responsibilities associated with signing this user agreement.


Users should NOT use the Network to


  1. access, create, send or receive, store, or display obscene materials
  2. create or send threatening or libelous communications or communications which include vulgar, abusive, or otherwise inappropriate language
  3. access or use other individuals' accounts, information, or files without permission
  4. access websites, files, or other information or resources using passwords not specifically assigned to themselves
  5. pursue commercial or for-profit endeavors
  6. wantonly waste district resources
  7. damage, disable, or otherwise disrupt the operation of the Network
  8. violate any local, state, or federal statutes, including but not limited to copyright law


Users who find themselves inadvertently accessing inappropriate materials or resources are directed to immediately and discretely terminate that access and report the incident to a teacher.


Users are directed to exercise caution while online regarding the disclosure of personal information such as name, age, gender, home address, telephone number, and are encouraged not to respond to unsolicited online contacts and to report to a teacher any online contacts which are frightening, threatening, or otherwise inappropriate.


It is the joint responsibility of students, parents, and employees of the school district to assure the appropriate and effective use of technology to both enhance the quality of student learning and the efficiency of district operations.  The smooth and reliable operation of the Network is dependent upon the proper conduct of the end users who must adhere to stated guidelines.
