Technology is an integral part of the learning experiences in the Lowndes County Schools. Students use these resources to acquire knowledge, to seek, evaluate, and create information, and to communicate and collaborate with others. The use of the system’s computers and network is a privilege that requires each student to act responsibly. To guide this use of technology, the Lowndes County Board of Education has approved a Student Acceptable Use Policy which describes the expectations for how technology should be used by students in the Lowndes County Schools.
Likewise, we expect employees to model ethical and professional conduct as they use technology to enhance instruction and to facilitate their daily tasks. To provide direction to employees on how technology is to be used, the Board of Education has also adopted an Employee Acceptable Use Policy with Expectations for Communicating Electronically. It is the responsibility of each employee to understand and to adhere to this policy.
