Employee Use Of Technology
The Governing Board recognizes that technology can enhance employee performance by improving access to and exchange of information, offering effective tools to assist in providing a quality instructional program, and facilitating operations. The Board expects all employees to learn to use the available electronic resources that will assist them in their jobs. As needed, staff shall receive training in the appropriate use of these resources.
(cf. 0440 - District Technology Plan)
Employees shall be responsible for the appropriate use of the district's electronic resources. The primary intent of these resources is the effective and expedient disposition of employee responsibilities. Use of district e-mail for political campaigns or other political activities is illegal. Incidental personal use may be permitted as a revocable courtesy.
cf. 4119.25/4219.25/4319.25 - Political Activities of Employees)
Employees should be aware that computer files and communications over electronic networks, including e-mail and voice mail, are not private or confidential. Such files and communications are the property of the district.
To ensure proper use, the Superintendent or designee may monitor the district's technological resources, including e-mail and voice mail systems, at any time without advance notice or consent.
The Superintendent or designee shall establish administrative regulations which outline employee obligations and responsibilities related to the use of technology. Employees who fail to abide by these regulations shall be subject to disciplinary action, revocation of the user account and legal action as appropriate.
(cf. 4218 - Dismissal/Suspension/Disciplinary Action)
The Superintendent or designee may establish guidelines and limits on the use of technological resources. He/she shall ensure that all employees using these resources receive copies of related policies, regulations and guidelines.
(cf. 4112.9/4212.9/4312.9 - Employee Notifications)
In the event that the use of an electronic resource adversely affects the working conditions of one or more employees, the Superintendent or designee shall notify the employees' exclusive representative.

Employee Use Of Technology
Staff will employ electronic mail on a frequent basis at work as a primary tool for communications. The district may rely upon this medium to communicate information, and all staff will be responsible for checking and reading messages frequently and regularly.
The computer and telephone networks are provided for staff and students to conduct research and communicate with others. Communications over the district networks are primarily public in nature; therefore, general rules and standards for professional behavior and communications will apply.
Network administrators may review files and communications to maintain system integrity and to ensure that staff members are using the system responsibly. Users should not expect that files stored on district systems will be private. The district reserves the right to monitor any on-line communications for improper use and to limit the use of district resources.
The following behaviors are not permitted on district networks:
1. Sending or displaying inflammatory, offensive or unprofessional messages
Users shall report any security problem or misuse of the network to the Superintendent or designee. The Network Administrator will report inappropriate behaviors to the employee's supervisor who will take appropriate action in conjunction with the Network Administrator. Violations may result in an immediate loss of access and/or disciplinary action. When applicable, law enforcement agencies may be involved.
Each employee shall be given copies of this policy and procedures.
