Acceptable Use Policy (AUP)
The Barren County School System has made a significant investment in technology so that students will have the opportunity to develop the skills necessary to excel in our modern world. With this investment in technology comes a great responsibility: to provide students with a positive well-structured learning environment that will foster creative learning. Through this students will learn skills that apply to real world problem solving.

Students shall use District technology resources only for educational uses as determined by teachers and/or administrators. Students shall not circumvent any security and safety measures to access information and/or content of an inappropriate or non-educational manner. Each student is responsible for security of his/her own user account and password. Any misuse conducted under a particular individual�s account will be considered the responsibility of that individual unless otherwise determined by a teacher or administrator through the disciplinary process.

The Gmail e-mail solution is provided to your child by the district as part of the Gsuites service from Google. By signing this form, you hereby accept and agree that your child�s rights to use the Google Gmail service, and other Google Gsuites services as the Kentucky Department of Education may provide and that the data stored in such Gmail services, including Gsuites e-mail, are managed by the district pursuant to policy 08.2323 and accompanying procedures. You also understand that the Gsuites ID provided to your child also can be used to access other electronic services that provide features such as online storage and instant messaging. Use of those Google services is subject to Google's standard consumer terms of use (the GSuites Service Agreement), and data stored in those systems are managed pursuant to the Gsuites Service Agreement and the Google Online Privacy Statement. Before your child can use those Google services, he/she must accept the Gsuites Service agreement and, in certain cases obtain your consent.

Students shall be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including expulsion for violating this policy and acceptable use rules and regulations established by the school or District. The exact disciplinary actions taken in regards to violations of the District�s Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) shall be determined by school and district administrators as appropriate based on the severity of the violation up to and including expulsion for students as well as the possibility of criminal charges if applicable. Individuals using district technology resources should be aware that all content and usage is logged and monitored.
