Apps for Education is primarily for educational use. Students may use Apps for personal use subject to the restrictions below:
Privacy: Students have no expectation of privacy from school faculty on the Apps system. School staff, administrators, and parents all have access to student email for monitoring purposes.
Limited Personal Use: Students may use Apps tools for personal projects but may not use them for:
Personal financial gain
Inappropriate or offensive content
Threatening another person
Misrepresentation of Frontier Charter Academy staff or students
Data Security: Student files and email are safe within Apps. It is the responsibility of the student to download and save information they want to keep for personal use.
Students may not post personal contact information about themselves or other people. This includes addresses and phone numbers.
Students will not agree to meet with someone they have met online without their parent’s approval and participation.
Students will tell their teacher or other school employee about any message they receive which is inappropriate or makes them feel uncomfortable.
Students are responsible for the use of their individual accounts and should take all reasonable precautions to prevent others from being able to use their account, including not allowing other students to use the same Chromebook. Under no conditions should a user provide their password to another person.
Treat others as you want to be treated. Be respectful in your interactions and comments with your peers. If you wouldn’t feel comfortable saying it to someone’s face, please think twice before typing it. Students have the right to free speech, but it is limited within a school to ensure a safe learning environment for others in the community.
Represent yourself in an honest and open manner. Students are invited to share photos or artistic representations of themselves to help classmates feel closer within the digital environment. To this end, avatars and personal profile pictures are expected to represent the user.
Produce your own work. This includes submitting original work that was produced only by you or, in the case of a group project, your group. This also means not altering or removing another student’s work without their explicit permission. Staff may request live desktop sharing or other proof of work if originality is in question. Plagiarism, or presenting another’s work or ideas as your own, is taken seriously and may result in administrative action (see Compliance Policy).
