The changing educational environment and level of technology integration may require that students access web-based technology tools while using non-South Western owned equipment (e.g. home computer, cell phone, etc.) and/or using non-South Western owned resources (e.g. Internet, Cellular data, etc.).
Such tools include, but are not limited to, hardware, software, Internet access, web-based applications (e.g. Gmail, Wikispaces.com, Blackboard, Blogs, Discussion Boards, Podcasts, etc.), personal electronic devices, telecommunication products, audio/video equipment, and any other tool used for classroom instruction.
Any student user accounts created by South Western personnel or by students, for the purpose of completing course curriculum are subject to the guidelines defined by the Acceptable Use Policy of the South Western School District, regardless of where the access to that technology tool has taken place.
At a minimum, all South Western students will be assigned a network login, a South Western School District Google Apps for Education account (includes District Gmail (email) and Google Drive) in the South Western Google organization. All email will be filtered for profanity and archived for a period of two weeks. If you prefer that your child not be assigned any one of these accounts of educational purpose, please submit your specific request, in writing, to your building principal.
