INTERNET POLICY 
Hamilton Southeastern Schools has Internet access at all schools throughout the district.  Our goal is to have Internet and e-mail access at each computer lab and at all stand-alone computers in the school corporation.  
 
It is our intent to provide a safe environment with Internet services at School.  We have the ability to block undesirable locations or addresses. If someone tries to access a blocked address we will know which work station attempted to access that site.  The Internet access is supervised and monitored.  
The School Board has approved a Policy on District-Provided Access to Electronic Information, Services and Networks.  This policy explains the Internet use and what we are trying to avoid at school.  This policy is extended to anyone interested in accessing the Internet at the locations accessible from the corporation’s web server. 
The School Board approved Policy is available in the school office.  If you would like for your child to have access to the Internet at School, please review the policy and return the form to the school office.   
Students will utilize e-mail and websites for educational purposes only.  Defaming or derogatory comments made by a student regarding another classmate or teacher will not be tolerated.   

Photographing of Students and Personnel 
Students may not use any audio or video devices to photograph or record the activities of other students or district personnel while on school property or a school-sponsored activity unless authorized in advance by the staff member supervising the activity and with the consent of the individual(s) being recorded.  At the time of registration, families may request to opt out of photo and video events.  Students who violate this expectation may face appropriate disciplinary consequences.
