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.
For the past two years, we have phased-in infrastructure improvements campus-wide, working toward full
by August 2014. We will achieve that certification by providing, supporting, and enforcing an Internet Security Policy
enabled through technological (a multi-faceted, content-filtering solution set) and educational (in-class and online) means.
Internet Safety Policy & Information
For some time, we have required student and faculty sign-off on a Computing Safety & Permissions Policy. New for the
2014-2015 school year is our revised
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.
This new page is in its fledgling state and will grow over time, especially during June-July 2014 as we prepare for the
new school year. Check back often, and if you have content ideas, perhaps a good article or video you have reviewed,
please send that information to us at:
for Administration review and potential inclusion.
