Schools look at ethical use of technology

-A A +A
By Carol A. Clark

Los Alamos Public Schools Technology Coordinator Dean Obermeyer and his staff are working with central office officials to upgrade the district’s policy on the ethical use of technology.

 

“What we’re doing is bringing the policy to meet the New Mexico Administrative Code and procedures implemented in 2007,” Obermeyer said during his presentation at Tuesday night’s school board meeting in the district boardroom.

 

“These are the initial steps to make sure the district is in compliance.”

 

As technology becomes more sophisticated – so do all the rules and regulations governing it.

 

Assistant Superintendent Kate Thomas mentioned attending a meeting recently in which some 80 documents were identified that have different retention requirements.

 

New laws require that certain documents be retained for seven years while others are never to be destroyed but must be sent to the state archives. There are also drafts and other documents that don’t have to be retained at all.

 

Obermeyer discussed the rules regarding ethical use of technology by district employees and students.

 

He explained that computer users must sign an agreement before they are allowed to log on.
