Technology Policies

    We expect our students to remember our S.M.A.R.T. motto while using technology.

    Each year we address the topic of digital citizenship and online safety with students at all grade levels.

    Flagstaff Unified School District's student technology policies along with other information regarding technology use, can be found on the Technology Policies and Guidelines page.

    Expectations from the district's Policy IJNDB-E include the areas of digital citizenship, responsible use, and technology care.

    Digital Citizenship Expectations
    Being a good digital citizen is more than knowing how to get around online. It's about thinking critically, behaving safely, and participating responsibly in our digital world.

    Responsible digital citizens:

    • Agree to not submit, publish, display, or knowingly retrieve any material that is not school-appropriate. Material that is generally available in print and other media in the library or classroom sets the standard for acceptability.
    • Abide by all copyright and trademark laws and regulations.
    • Protect their own privacy and that of others by not revealing the home address or personal phone numbers of themselves or others unless authorized to do so by designated school authorities.
    • Agree to not engage in cyberbullying. Examples of cyberbullying include mean text messages or emails, rumors sent by email or posted on social networking sites, and embarrassing pictures, videos, websites, or fake profiles.
      Resources on cyberbullying can be found at

    Responsible Use Expectations
    Responsible digital citizens:

    • Use their own student account and not share their account information (username and password) with others.
    • Understand that communications, documents, and online activities are not private and may be read and monitored by district staff.
    • Use FUSD Technology resources for educational purposes only.
    • Use the network in any way that will not disrupt the use of the network by others. For example, downloading of large files while connected to the district wireless network may disrupt services for district staff and students.
    • Do not compromise the web filter to access blocked pages.
    • Immediately inform a teacher if restricted information/pages are mistakenly accessed.

    Technology Care Expectations
    Users responsibly care for technology when they:

    • Do not attempt to harm, modify, or destroy district hardware or software, or interfere with system security and district servers.
    • Do not modify computer settings. For example, add or delete icons, change the wallpaper, etc.
