New Derry school computer policy targets substitutes
At its next school board meeting on Aug. 27, the board is expected to approve a new acceptable use computer policy for staff members in the district.
“There were a few changes, especially as the technology for the Internet continues to change, and there are so many websites that have social media components,” said McKenna.
The major area of change in the policy will be its inclusion of substitute teachers, said Superintendent Laura Nelson.
In the past, substitute teachers did not have access to the district computer system, but with the increasing use of technology for everything from taking attendance to checking lesson plans, Nelson said the access is now needed.
In addition to addressing the use of school computers, the policy also addresses the use of personal devices on school property.
“If (computer use) breaches into the school day and interrupts it, it becomes a school issue for discipline,” she said.
