While AAED is a school for students with Autism and services the entire spectrum, there are some students that may not be a good fit for the Autism Academy and need a more restrictive environment. AAED reserves the right to inform families when AAED may not be or continue to be the right placement for students. AAED will help support any family with finding a more appropriate environment.
Autism Academy is pleased to offer students access to technology resources for educational purposes, which may include computer hardware and software licensed to the school. To gain access to the technology resources, all students must obtain parental permission as verified by the signatures on this agreement. Should a parent prefer that a student not have e-mail and internet access, use of the computer is still possible for more traditional purposes such as word processing.
Internet, E-mail, Cell Phones/I-Phones
Access to internet and e-mail will enable students to explore thousands of libraries, databases, museums, and other repositories of information and to exchange personal communication with other internet users around the world.
FAMILIES SHOULD BE AWARE THAT SOME MATERIAL ACCESSIBLE VIA THE INTERNET MAY CONTAIN ITEMS THAT ARE ILLEGAL, DEFAMATORY, INACCUR ATE, OR POTENTIALLY OFFENSIVE.
While the purpose of the school is to use internet resources for constructive educational goals, students may find ways to access other materials. We believe that the benefits to students from access to the internet outweigh the disadvantages. Ultimately, however, parents and guardians of minors are responsible for setting and conveying the standards that their children should follow when using media and information sources. Therefore, we support and respect each family's right to decide whether or not to allow access to the internet.
What is expected?
Students are responsible for appropriate behavior on the school's computer network just as they are in a classroom or on a school playground . Communications on the network are often public in nature. General school rules for behavior and communications apply. It is expected that users will comply with the standards and the specific rules set forth below.
The use of technology resources is a privilege, not a right, and may be revoked if abused. The user is personally responsible for his/her actions in accessing and utilizing the school's technology resources. The students are expected never to access, keep, or send anything that they would not want their parents or teachers to see. Under no circumstances are students to access any sites that are sexual in nature.
What are the Rules of Appropriate Use?
Personal Safety and Personal Privacy - Students will not post personal contact information about themselves. Personal contact information includes their address, telephone, school address, etc. This information may not be provided to an individual , organization, or company, including web sites that solicit personal information.
Social Networking - Accessing social networking websites, blogs, video sites (e.g., Myspace, Facebook, YouTube, Friendster, tagged, etc., except those used for educational purposes) are off-limits on school property. The use of circumventors to get around school network security is prohibited.
Illegal copying - Students should never download or install any commercial software, shareware, or freeware onto network drives or disks. Nor should students copy other people's work or intrude into other people's files. The download/upload of any material in violation of any U.S., state or school policy is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to, copyrighted materials, threatening, violent, or obscene material, or material protected by trade secret.
Inappropriate materials or language - No profane, abusive or impolite language should be used to communicate nor should materials be accessed which are not in line with the rules of school behavior. Use of technology resources for gambling, chain letter communication, unauthorized email, chat or instant message, biogs, and discussion forums, is also prohibited. Should students encounter such material by accident, they should report it to their teacher immediately. A good rule to follow is never view, send, or access materials, which you would not want your teachers and parents to see.
Use of cell phones/I-phones to transmit unacceptable language and/or images that are harmful to self, other students, and/or to other people is prohibited.
These are guidelines to follow to prevent the loss of technology privileges at school.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding our policy, please talk to the Director, Shannon Mitchell or the classroom teacher.
