Everything you Need to Know about AUP
LISD's authorized use policy (AUP) outlines a set of rules and requirements for all users on the LISD Network. Please enjoy the following video to learn more.
Hi, you use technology every day at LISD and we all have a part in being good digital citizens. Now you may ask, what does that mean? Well, being a good digital citizen at LISD is to find the acceptable use policy, sometimes called the AUP, which you have agreed to as a student in order to use LI is the technology, while the AUP is the authorized policy for being a good citizen at LISD. I wanted to take a moment to highlight a few key points. However, these highlights do not replace the AUP as the official policy. Always refer to it if you have any questions. First, everyone has a responsibility to make the digital learning environment at LISD a safe place. So let me review how LISD provides a safe environment and then I will explain your role as a student. LISD provides security through individual passwords and user IDs, filters to prevent access to inappropriate web content. Providing an elementary App Store, and preventing access to secondary unapproved apps. Data privacy agreements, and selecting the devices that best suits the needs of the educational process. Now you, the student have responsibilities such as protect your allies to user ID and password and only share them with your teacher, parent, or guardian. Do not participate in cyberbullying. Cyberbullying is defined as the use of any internet connected device for the purpose of bullying, harassing, or intimidating another student. This includes, but may not be limited to sending or posting abusive comments, acting, pretending, or creating media as someone other than yourself, posting others personal information, and or recording and sharing media with the intent to manipulate or embarrass others. Represent yourself online the same you would in person. If you're being bullied or witness someone else being bullied. Tell the school staff member. You can also report it anonymously using this online form located using this URL. Check the terms of service on digital tools and websites, and follow age restrictions, including getting your parents or guardians permission when required. Asked for permission before recording or posting voice or any image of a student or LISD staff member. Only access resources and data use in your own LISD username and password. Do not impersonate others. Digital identity never plagiarize or use copyrighted information without permission from the copyright holder, and do not disable or attempt to disable the district's monitoring and filtering system. In some cases, you may choose to use a personal device for school purposes. Although the device is owned by you, the student, the campus administrators and teachers will determine when the device can be used. Using a personal device inappropriately, we'll still lead to disciplinary consequences when on campus and use in your own phone, tablet, or computer. Only access the Internet through the LISD Wi-Fi use in your username and password. In order to access, you'll need to download the appropriate certificate.

Now keep in mind that the AUP applies whenever and wherever you are using LISD technology and resources. During an emergency situation, students may only use their cell phones to contact 911. All the other calls will be in violation of the AUP status, actions required, and other official information will be communicated to the parents, guardians, and others by the district. Now, what happens if you violate the AUP? A possible loss of use of LISD devices, a possible loss of use of the LISD Network, possible disciplinary action or police involvement for violations to the Student Code of Conduct. In conclusion, digital citizenship is a responsibility we all share. Staff members, students, parents and guardians are responsible for following the acceptable use policy. Together, we can maintain a safe learning environment that provides exciting and innovative and opportunities for the students at LISD.Delete
