Chicod School now offers students access to the Internet through the Pitt County computer network.
Computers are used to support learning and to enhance instruction. Because access to the Internet provides connections to other computer systems all over the world, users (students, teachers, and parents) must understand that neither Chicod School nor any staff member controls the content of the information available on these other systems. Some of the information is controversial and sometimes may be offensive. Chicod School does not condone the access or the use of such materials.
A responsible user may use the Internet to research assigned classroom projects and personal areas of interest under the direct supervision of an adult. E-mail at Chicod School is to be conducted only under the direct supervision of the classroom teacher in correlation with the North Carolina Standard Course of Study. All e-mails are screened by Pitt County School personnel.
A responsible user:
- may not use the Internet for any illegal purpose
- may not use impolite or abusive language
- may not send or receive copyrighted material without permission
- may not share his or her USER ID password
Also, as stated in the Pitt County Code of Student Conduct (Rule 17): “No student shall have or possess any obscene literature, photographs, slides, motion pictures, videos, or other materials. Students shall not intentionally access or view on the Internet at school or disseminate across the Internet or in any manner such materials.” This is a Category I offense which may result in up to 5 days suspension from school for the first offense.
Please notify the school in writing if you do not want your child to have access to the Internet at Chicod School. Send the notification to your child’s teacher and they will forward a copy to the office.
