Staff Web Pages

Creating a good web presence is essential for all educators. We provide a variety of tools to teachers that can be used create dynamic websites, online courses and web 2.0 environments. There are, however, several key things to keep in mind when creating and using web tools with students.
  • Policy 7540.02 defines appropriate use of District websites
  • the purpose of web pages should be to educate, inform and communicate
  • Staff members are prohibited from directing students to go to the staff member’s personal social networking sites for any reason (e.g., Facebook, My Space, Twitter).
  • If a staff member creates a web page/site (e.g., wikki, blog, or other web 2.0 environment) related to his/her class, it must be hosted on the Board’s server unless otherwise approved by the Chief Technology Officer.
  • Absent express written agreement to the contrary, the Board retains all proprietary rights, title and interests related to the source code, design, content and programming of web sites and/or pages that are hosted on the Board’s servers, including but not limited to copyrights, trademarks, and service marks. As sole owner of the rights to such web sites/pages and their content, the Board may use them in whole or in part for any purpose without restrictions and without compensation to the provider or designer. Further, the Board is free to use any ideas, concepts, know-how or techniques contained in any such site for any purpose whatsoever.
  • Students who want their class work to be displayed on the Board’s web site must have written parent permission and expressly license its display without cost to the Board.
  • Written parental permission is necessary for a student to be identified by name on the Board’s web site prior to posting.
