Technology and Digital Citizenship
CELL PHONES / TABLETS / SMART WATCHES / SMART DEVICES:
Students are prohibited from using any and all SMART devices or cell phones on campus unless the student has received permission from his/her teacher or other authorized school employee and he/she has completed the TUSD Bring Your Own Device agreement. If a student is found using his/her device on campus without permission, the device will be taken and locked in the office or classroom by the teacher, until the parent comes to pick it up. TUSD cannot guarantee students’ cyber safety on personal smart devices. This policy applies before and after school, as well. Students are welcome to use the office phones to call home if they have a need before or after school.
All students are required to read and abide by the TUSD Acceptable Use Policy Agreement. Digital media and technology are evolving at a dizzying pace, unlocking extraordinary opportunities for our students. Students are using the immense power of the Internet and mobile technology to explore, connect, create, and learn in incredible ways, both in and out of the classroom. As such, Beswick believes that teaching digital citizenship skills is essential for students in the 21st century, especially in schools like ours that are using technology to transform learning. That's why we are committed to teaching our students how to think critically, behave safely, and participate responsibly.
