    STUDENTS:

    I have read and will abide by the “Acceptable Use of Technology Policy” of The Demarest School District. I further understand that any violation of the agreement is unethical and may constitute a criminal offense. Should I commit any violation, my access privileges may be revoked and school disciplinary action and/or appropriate legal actions may be taken. I acknowledge that Demarest Public Schools, under the Anti-Big Brother Act, will not violate students’ privacy rights. Student files and internet activity may be monitored to ensure student safety and compliance with NJ HIB laws.

     

    PARENTS/GUARDIANS:

    I have read and agreed to assist my child in understanding and abiding by the “Acceptable Use of Technology Agreement” of The Demarest School District. I understand that access to district technology equipment and its entire system of electronic communication is designed for educational purposes. I also recognize that some materials on the Internet may be controversial and objectionable and that, while every attempt will be made to block inappropriate sites, it is impossible for The Demarest School District to restrict access to all controversial and objectionable materials. I will not hold The Demarest School District responsible for the accuracy or quality of any materials acquired or viewed on its system by my child. I understand that improper or inappropriate use of technology equipment and the district system by my child may result in revocation of his/her technology privileges and the imposition of school discipline, criminal penalties, or civil penalties. I accept all financial and legal liabilities that may result from my child’s use of The Demarest School District equipment and technology system. I release The Demarest School District, its officers, employees, agents, representatives, and all organizations and individuals related to The Demarest School District’s technology system from any and all liability or damages that may result from my child’s use of The District’s equipment and electronic communication system. I specifically agree to indemnify and hold The Demarest School District, its officers, employees, agents and representatives harmless for any actions, claims, costs, damages or losses including, but not limited to, attorney’s fees incurred by The Demarest School District relating to, or arising out of my child’s use of such equipment and system. I acknowledge that Demarest Public Schools, under the Anti-Big Brother Act, will not violate students’ privacy rights.

     

    Apple:

    The student below has been issued an Apple laptop in support of his/her education in the Demarest School District. The laptop and its content remain the property of the Demarest School District. The district’s “Acceptable Use of Technology Agreement” fully applies to the use of this equipment both on and off school premises. Laptop settings have been adjusted for appropriate school use. These settings must not be altered, deleted or circumvented in any way. The school has also downloaded applications for student use. The student and parent/guardian agree to be responsible for the maintenance and care of the laptop, and to return it when requested in the same condition in which it was received, except for normal and reasonable wear and tear. Laptops will be inspected periodically to check for appropriate use. An insurance policy must be purchased in order for students to use the laptop off school premises.
