Technology Safety: On & Off Campus
Since Montessori Academy first provided online computing to staff and students, we have worked hard to offer
reliable, high-performance access to localized features and programs as well as safe internet access. The school's
computing capabilities have grown from two office computers and a printer, to over 60 computers, a dozen printers,
and iPads in the classrooms.
Since Summer 2012, we have phased-in infrastructure improvements campus-wide, resulting in full
by August 2014. We achieved that self-certification by providing, supporting, and enforcing an Internet Security Policy
enabled through technological (a multi-faceted, content-filtering solution set), educational (in-class and online), and
school policy means.
Regardless of network access method, whether hard-wired, internal Wi-Fi or, community Wi-Fi, the same rules and
responsibilities apply to all users for all purposes. Access is a privilege, not a right, and may be revoked without cause
at any time. Questions should be directed to the Principal.
Internet Safety Policy & Information
For some time, we have required student and faculty sign-off on a Computing Safety & Permissions Policy. Effective
as of Summer 2014 is our Computing & Internet
Safety and Usage Agreement, which encapsulates the entire policy for both students and faculty in a single, one-page document. The establishment of a
single policy for all users is intended to foster the setting of good examples by school staff for our students, showing
first-hand that school rules and good sense are meant for everyone.
