The Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation believes that in order for students to positively
contribute to a 21st century global society, they must be globally aware, civically engaged, and
capable of managing their lives. In this society, students also will need to be able to
thoughtfully use information, media, and technology in order to succeed. The EVSC provides
technology resources with these goals for its students in mind.
The EVSC believes the educational advantages of using technology outweigh the potential for
misuse. The EVSC has established safeguards to ensure the protection of staff and students.
These safeguards ensure the benefits of technology, protect the corporation’s investment in
hardware and software, and help to prevent misuse. Technology allows EVSC users to access
and utilize global resources, communicate and collaborate with other individuals/groups for
educational purposes, and significantly expand access to digital curriculum and research.
The provisions of this policy and associated guidelines and agreements are in addition the
requirements of applicable school rules and state and federal law. The EVSC has the duty to
investigate any suspected violations.
