Elementary – Internet Acceptable Use

Our goal for Internet Use at Blackhawk Christian School is that students have access to rich educational opportunities while ensuring that students are protected from negative influences in keeping with CIPA (Children’s Internet Protection Act.)

  • All students in the elementary school will have on file parental permission to use the Internet on school computers. Students may only use school computers in the classroom or computer lab while under teacher supervision.
  • While accessing the Internet, students and staff may participate in activities that support learning and teaching. Internet use must be education driven. With access to other networks around the world, information may be encountered that is not appropriate. BCS has taken measures to prevent accessing inappropriate information; however, it is impossible to control all the information available on the Internet. We trust students and staff to use discretion in seeking appropriate information. The following guidelines are intended to help students use the Internet wisely. If a student does not follow the policies listed here, the privilege of using the Internet will be withdrawn.

On the Internet Students May:

  • Search for appropriate research material with Internet Search Engines, Directory Searches, and access appropriate websites.
  • Print out a reasonable length document (1-8 pgs.)

On the Internet Students May Not:

  • Access E-mail, chat rooms, news groups, Listservs, or password protected areas for which they have not been given a password.
  • Install Programs or alter the browser or operating system in any way.
  • Delete files.
  • Give out personal information such as an address, telephone number or pictures of themselves or others.
  • Implement the spread of computer viruses.
