Technology Use Policy
The purpose of the Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) is to ensure school-wide compliance with the guidelines and educational objectives set forth by Maryvale Preparatory School. The Acceptable Use Policies and Guidelines shall apply to all students, faculty, staff and administrators who use the Maryvale technology resources as defined in the Student/Parent Handbook. The ultimate responsibility for appropriate use of the Internet and Maryvale’s resources lies with the user of these resources.
Consequences of Inappropriate Behavior
All use of Maryvale technology resources will be monitored through the use of computer software and/or by any teacher and/or administrator with the assistance of the IT coordinator and director of academic technology.
Any user who does not comply with these guidelines will lose access privileges and/or have his or her iPad confiscated for a period of time.
Students who have repeated severe infractions of the AUP will be subject to disciplinary action in accordance with disciplinary policies set forth in the Handbook. The dean of students in consultation with the director of academic technology will determine the disciplinary response. Violations of federal and state regulations, such as sending threatening email and accessing or distributing obscene material, will be dealt with by the governing law enforcement agency.
With the exception of students with teacher permission or students with medical notes on file, failure to adhere to any part of the Acceptable Use Policy warrants a demerit and/or other disciplinary action.
