How Parents Can Help • Remind your child of the KSD user rulesand to: a. Handle the computer safely. b. Be cautious around brothers and sisters. c. Fully charge the battery every evening. • Remind them they are responsible for any damage or loss just like a textbook. • Students will be assessed for the cost of the item: laptop, charger, battery, etc., if the loss or damage is intentional or due to negligence.
Final Things to Remember: • KSD uses the Lightspeed Internet filter: • Internet filters are not perfect. • The filter works at home, but parents still need to monitor. • Don’t bypass the filter which will result in a Tech Violation and/or school discipline. • Report any problems to administrators or teachers.
KSD IT may remove a user’s access to the network without notice at any time if the user is engaged in any unauthorized activity. • The KSD will cooperate with law enforcement investigations relating to any inappropriate activities. • It is critical that students have essential 21st century skills. The laptop is a tool to help them achieve that goal.
