Employee Use of the Internet

In the past several years, DSEA has had a rash of contractual and legal issues regarding alleged misuse of the Internet – school and personal. Therefore, we wanted to remind you of the following common sense applications of Internet usage.

  1. You have Internet access at your school and you probably have signed a copy of the District’s “Acceptable Use Policy.” PLEASE READ IT!
  2. Do NOT visit Internet sites from your school computer that would be objectionable if a student saw the information posted there.
  3. Be VERY CAREFUL in your e-mail correspondence to students. Do not send even marginally questionable jokes, notes, etc. to students EITHER from your school computer or from your home computer. Your e-mail correspondence to students should ONLY be classroom-related. In fact, it would be better to e-mail to the PARENT, rather than the student.
  4. Do your best to monitor what students are viewing over the Internet sites in your workplace. Be sure that you have a classroom policy on use of the computers and Internet sites.
  5. Always remember that SOMEONE can read any e-mail you send or receive from the school’s computer.
  6. Illegal use of the Internet and e-mail ARE grounds for termination.
  7. When in doubt, DON’T! YOUR career is at stake.
