DEVICES

As City View moves to online instruction for all students, the Technology department will

approach the year in two phases with regard to student devices. The beginning of the

school year will focus on the immediate student need. Schools will work to identify the

students in their schools who are currently in need of a device in order to access online

instruction. The first wave of devices will come from the existing stock of devices in schools. 

The secon phase of devices is about moving the school to a 1:1 computing for students. 

Help Desk

City View Charter School  makes every effort to equip parents/guardians with the necessary tools and information to ensure safe use of the laptops in the home. There are several responsibilities assumed by the parent/guardian. These are outlined below.

 

City View Computer and Internet Acceptance Form

PARENT/GUARDIAN RESPONSIBILITIES

Parent/Guardian

Responsibility

In order for students to be issued a laptop, a student and his/her parent/guardian must acknowledge acceptance of the 

City View Computer and Internet Acceptance Form and a Device Check Out Form. A student will not be issued a laptop until the agreement has been accepted and electronically signed by both parent and student and returned to the school.

Parent/Guardian

Responsibility

The parent/guardian/student are responsible for the cost of repair or replacement at the date of loss if the property is:

  • Not returned

  • Intentionally damaged

  • Damaged because of negligence

  • Lost or stolen devices must be reported to school and/or police immediately. In cases involving theft a police report will be required.

Monitor Student Use

The parent/guardian must agree to monitor student use at home (if applicable) and away from school. The best way to keep students safe and on-task is to have a parent/guardian present and involved.  Go Guardian will be our filtering program while students are either on a City View owned device or logged into their account on any device.

Suggestions

For schools and parents/guardians alike, student safety is always a high priority. The precautions described in this section are intended to help students be safe on the path to and from school. Student safety always comes first.

Parent/Guardian

Responsibility

Register for the ‘Go Guardian’ parental app which allows parents to monitor student computer usage. Available late September.

 

Develop a set of rules/expectations for internet use at home. Some websites provide parent/child agreements for you to sign.

 

Only allow internet use in common rooms of the home (e.g. living room or kitchen) and not in bedrooms. Demonstrate a genuine interest in what your student is doing while online. Ask questions and request that they show you his or her work often.

City View Charter operates subject to federal regulations intended to preserve the safety and privacy of our students: CIPA, COPPA, and FERPA. All CVCS policies are intended to comply with or exceed these guidelines.  

 

CIPA is the Children’s Internet Protection Act. It specifies that CVCS must prevent illegal or unauthorized access to and use of our computers, software, and networks. This includes internet access, e-mail, and any other form of electronic communication. CIPA also requires that we keep personal information secure.  https://www.fcc.gov/consumers/guides/childrens-internet-protection-act

 

COPPA is the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act. Many websites required users to submit their name and email address in order to use that site. COPPA requires any website that collects such information to get permission from a parent/guardian before they allow a child under age 13 to sign up.  In the case of City View, Google Apps For Education (GAFE) must comply with COPPA -- that’s why we need parent/guardian permission to issue a City View email address so that our students under age 13 can use gmail.  http://www.ftc.gov/privacy/coppafaqs.shtm

 

FERPA is the Federal Education Rights Privacy Act. It grants students and their parent or guardian access to a student’s educational records. It also regulates what student directory information (name, e-mail, DOB, etc) that a school can legally share with third parties. 

 

City View provided Chromebooks have a Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) compliant filter applied to all student users.  This filter is through the student Google account and will also be applied to any Chrome Browser that a City View student logs into.
