Growing pains with BYOD
"LVJUSD offers filtered and managed wireless access. This means that LVJUSD is compliant with federal regulations requiring districts to restrict student access to websites or other Internet resources that are not appropriate for minors based on content or commercial interests requiring students to divulge personal information. Students in grades K-12 who bring a personal computing device to school must agree to the District’s filtering and security policies. Uses of devices in the classroom are for educational purposes only, and are subject to individual teacher approval."
Students may not bypass or attempt to bypass District filters or security. Continued abuse of the LVJUSD computer use guidelines will result in progressive discipline which could mean loss of computer privileges altogether.
