SUMMARY: This policy was written to inform students, their families, and staff about the acceptable ways in which information technology systems may be used in Fresno Unified School District. Fresno Unified School District is committed to improving student achievement and preparing all students to be career ready graduates. District Technology, which includes but is not limited to: computer hardware, software, and the Internet provide powerful tools to access information and communicate with people, enhancing learning and enabling the district to operate. With the constant introduction of new technology, new ways to communicate, and new ways to access and transfer information, it is therefore critical that the district continue to define a policy that ensures a safe learning environment for students and staff as well as the protection of the district’s technology. The use of FUSD technology is offered to students and staff as a privilege which must be safeguarded by all learners.
