In an effort to increase access to 21st Century skills, Decatur County Schools will allow students to utilize personal devices on our guest network and school grounds for students who follow the responsibilities as stated in the Decatur County Schools Acceptable Use Agreement (5th – 12th grades only) which must be signed by both the student and parent.
The Decatur County School System also believes staff and students should have open access to local, national, and international sources of information. The system, by providing access to electronic services via the Internet, recognizes the potential of such services to support curriculum and student learning. The goal of providing this access is to promote educational excellence by facilitating resource sharing, innovation, and communication.
Using the electronic services via the Internet is a privilege, not a right and all students and parents must sign the Decatur County School System Electronic Network Use Rules.
The documents (in bold) mentioned above must be signed and on file. Failure to submit to the terms and conditions as prescribed by these documents may result in loss of privileges or disciplinary action. Please see individual school discipline policies and/or handbooks for how technology infractions and violations will be handled.
