ORDINANCE # 2019-07-0009

BE IT ORDAINED, ETC., that the Franklin Parish School Board approve the 2019-20 Acceptable Use Policy and Internet Safety Agreement.

Franklin Parish School Board

Acceptable Use Policy and Internet Safety Agreement
2019-2020

Statement of Purpose

Franklin Parish School Board is pleased to offer our employees and students access to the World Wide Web and other electronic networks. The advantages afforded by the rich, digital resources available today through the World Wide Web outweigh any disadvantage. However, it is important to remember that access is a privilege, not a right, and carries with it responsibilities for all involved. This policy applies to all persons who gain access with any device, whether personal or district provided, to the school network.

Terms of Agreement

This policy applies to all persons using the Franklin Parish School Board network, accessing the Internet, or using a Franklin Parish School Board computer system. In order for a student/minor to be allowed access to a school computer system, computer network, and the Internet, parents must sign and return the attached consent form by September 3, 2019. For the purpose of this policy a minor is defined as an individual who has not attained the age of 17 years.

Acceptable Uses

The District is providing access to its school computer systems, computer networks, and the Internet for educational purposes only. The board expects that staff will blend thoughtful use of such information throughout the curriculum and that the staff will provide guidance and instruction to students in the appropriate use of such resources. If you have any doubt about whether a contemplated activity is educational, you may consult with the person(s) designated by the school to help you decide.

Accordingly, regulations for participation by anyone on the Internet shall include, but not be limited to, the following:

• All users must abide by rules of Network etiquette – Netiquette, including the following:

• Be polite. Use appropriate language and graphics. No swearing, vulgarities, suggestive, obscene, belligerent, or threatening language. Personal attacks are an unacceptable use of the network. If a user is the victim of a harsh, critical, or abusive statement, the user should bring the incident to the attention of the immediate supervisor or technology coordinator. It is better not to respond to these types of attacks.

• Avoid language and/or graphic representations which may be offensive to other users. Do not use network or Internet access to make, distribute, or redistribute jokes, stories, or other material which is based on slurs or stereotypes relating to race, gender, ethnicity, nationality, religion, or sexual orientation.

• Do not assume that a sender of e-mail is giving his or her permission for you to forward or redistribute the message to third parties or to give his/her e-mail address to third parties. This should only be done with permission or when you know that the individual would have no objection.

• Teachers may NOT allow individual students to use personal email, electronic chat rooms, instant messaging, social networking sites (i.e. Facebook and Twitter) and other forms of direct electronic communications. Webmail is NOT permitted on any computer located in the classroom or used by students except for school-provided student accounts that are educationally sound and safe that functions similar to that which is provided by services such as Google Apps for Education email. The teacher will use due diligence to monitor and insure the safety/security of minors when using such approved communication, such as, Google Apps for Education email, chat rooms, or other direct electronic communications.

• No personal addresses, personal phone numbers, or last names of minors will be permitted to be given out on the Internet or for any type of student account. No identifiable photographs will be allowed to be published on the Internet without appropriate written consent. Concerning a student/minor, appropriate written consent means a signature by a parent or legal guardian of the student.

• A student may not attempt to access any Internet resource without the prior consent of the teacher. The Internet is an extension of the classroom, and teachers are responsible for and must be aware of where his/her student goes on the Internet. Students are responsible for good behavior on school computer networks just as they are in a classroom or a school hallway. Communications on the network are often public in nature. General school rules for behavior and communications apply.

• Students encountering information or messages they deem dangerous or inappropriate on the web or when using electronic mail or direct communications should notify their teacher or other adult faculty member.

• Student Photos/Student Work. Publishing student pictures and work on websites promotes learning and collaboration and provides an opportunity to share the achievements of students. Images and products of K-12 students/minors may be included on the website without identifying captions or names. Parents/guardians must indicate their written consent to publish their child’s photo or school work on any school-related website BEFORE the item is published to the web. Please note that under no circumstances will K-12 student photos or work be identified with first and last name on a Franklin Parish website, including the district, school, or teacher website.

Privacy. Network and Internet access is provided as a tool for your education. The District reserves the right to monitor, inspect, copy, review and store at any time and without prior notice any and all usage of the computer network and Internet access and any and all information transmitted or received in connection with such usage. All such information files shall be and remain the property of the District, and no user shall have any expectation of privacy regarding such materials.

Copyright. All students and faculty must adhere to the copyright laws of the United States (P.L. 94-553) and the Congressional Guidelines that delineate it regarding software, authorship, and copying information.

Network Access. Access to the school network is a privilege, not a right. Every school in the district relies on the district network; therefore, preserving the integrity of that network must come first. The use of personal wireless access points or routers is restricted, as their use causes network instability. The district technology department must be notified before connecting any device to the school network to prevent network problems.

Websites. It is the policy of the Franklin Parish School Board that all district, school, classroom or other school related websites be updated and maintained by a faculty or staff member of the Franklin Parish School Board. Under no circumstance should a student/minor be allowed to post information on a district, school, classroom website or other school related websites without final approval from the site administrator.

Failure to Follow Acceptable Use Policy

The network is provided for students to conduct research, complete assignments, and communicate with others. Access to network services will be provided to students who agree to act in a considerate and responsible manner. Use of the computer network and Internet is a privilege, not a right. A user who violates this agreement shall, at a minimum, have his or her access to the network and Internet terminated and is subject to disciplinary action by the school administrator. The District may also take other disciplinary actions. Listed below are examples of unacceptable uses of the network.

• Uses that cause harm to others or damage to their property are prohibited. For example, do not engage in defamation (harming another’s reputation by lies); do not employ another’s password or some other user identifier that misleads message recipients into believing that someone other than you is communicating or otherwise using his/her access to the network or the Internet; do not upload a work, virus, trojan horse, time bomb, or other harmful form of programming or vandalism; do not participate in hacking activities or any form of unauthorized access to other computers, networks, or information systems.

• Uses that jeopardize the security of student access and of the computer network or other networks on the Internet are prohibited. For example, do not disclose or share your password with others; do not impersonate another user.

• Uses that are commercial transactions are not allowed. Students may not use the SCS or school network to sell or buy anything over the Internet. You should not give others private information about yourself or others.

• Illegal activities, including copyright or contract violations, shall not be permitted on the Internet.

• The Internet shall not be used for commercial, political, illegal, financial, or religious purposes. Violations shall be reported to a teacher or an administrator immediately.

• Threatening, profane, harassing, or abusive language shall be forbidden.

• Use of the network for any illegal activities is prohibited. Illegal activities include (a) tampering with computer hardware or software, (b) unauthorized entry into computers and files (hacking), (c) knowledgeable vandalism or destruction of equipment, and (d) deletion of computer files. Such activity is considered a crime under state and federal law. Any use which violates state or federal law relating to copyright, trade secrets, the distribution of obscene or pornographic materials, or which violates any other applicable law or municipal ordinance, is strictly prohibited.

• No user is permitted to knowingly or inadvertently load or create a computer virus or load any software that destroys files and programs, confuses users, or disrupts the performance of the system. No third party software will be installed without the consent of the assigned administrator.

• Invading the privacy of another user, using another’s account, posting personal messages without the author’s consent, and sending or posting anonymous messages shall be forbidden.

• Accessing pornographic or obscene materials or using or sending profanity in messages is forbidden.

• Any subscription to list serves, bulletin boards, or online services shall be approved by the superintendent or his designee prior to any such usage.

• The use of anonymous proxies or any site that allows the user to get around content filtering is strictly prohibited and is a direct violation of this agreement.

Internet Safety

• Parents and Users: Despite every effort for supervision and filtering, all users and their parents/guardians are advised that access to the electronic network may include the potential for access to materials inappropriate for school-aged students. Every user must take responsibility for his or her use of the network and Internet and avoid these sites. Ultimately, parents and guardians of minors are responsible for setting and conveying the standards that their children should follow when using media and information sources.

• Personal Safety: In using the network and Internet, users should not reveal personal information such as home address or telephone number. Users should never arrange a face-to-face meeting with someone “met” on the Internet.

• Confidentiality of Student Information: Personally identifiable information concerning students may not be disclosed or used in any way on the Internet without the permission of a parent or guardian. Users should never give out private or confidential information about themselves or others on the Internet.

• Active Restriction Measures: The District will utilize filtering software or other technologies to prevent all users from accessing visual depictions that are (1) obscene, (2) pornographic, or (3) harmful to minors. The filter can be disabled for adults engaged in bona fide research or for other lawful purposes. The use of anonymous proxies or any site that allows the user to get around the content filter is strictly prohibited and will be considered a violation of this policy. All teachers will use due diligence to monitor minors while on the Internet, and faculty and staff will encourage students to be safe online.

• All minors should be educated each year about appropriate online behavior, including cyberbullying, awareness and response, and interacting with other individuals on social networking sites and in chat rooms.

Use of New Web Tools

Online communication is critical to our students’ learning of 21st Century Skills. Tools, such as blogging and podcasting, offer authentic, real-world vehicles for student expression. Again, as educators, our primary responsibility to students is their safety. Hence, expectations for classroom blogs, student protected e-mails, podcasts, or other Web interactive use must follow all established Internet safety guidelines.

Blogging/Podcasting Terms and Conditions:

• The use of blogs, podcasts or other Web 2.0 tools is considered an extension of your classroom. Therefore, any speech that is considered inappropriate in the classroom is also inappropriate in all uses of blogs, podcasts, or other Web 2.0 tools. This includes, but is not limited to, profanity and racist, sexist or discriminatory remarks.

• Teachers must monitor all communication on blogs, podcasts, or other Web 2.0 tools that are used in the classroom.

• Students using blogs, podcasts or other web tools are expected to act safely by keeping ALL personal information out of their posts.

• A student should NEVER post personal information on the web (including, but not limited to, last names, personal details including addresses or phone numbers, or photographs). Do not, under any circumstances, agree to meet someone you have met over the Internet.

• Any personal blog a student creates in class is directly linked to the class blog which is typically linked to the student profile, and, therefore, must follow these blogging guidelines. In addition to following the information above about not sharing too much personal information (in the profile or in any posts/comments made), students need to realize that anywhere they use their blog login it links back to the class blog. Therefore, anywhere that login is used (posting to a separate personal blog, commenting on someone else’s blog, etc.), the account should be treated the same as a school blog and should follow district blogging guidelines. Comments made on blogs should be monitored and - if they are inappropriate – deleted.

• Never create a link to web sites from your blog or blog comment without reading the entire article to make sure it is appropriate for a school setting.

• Students using Web 2.0 tools agree to not share their user name or password with anyone besides their teachers and parents and to treat blog spaces as classroom spaces. Speech that is inappropriate for class is also inappropriate for a blog.

• Students who do not abide by these terms and conditions may lose their opportunity to take part in the project and/or be subject to consequences appropriate to misuse.

Teacher Responsibilities

• Provide developmentally appropriate guidance to students as they make use of telecommunications and electronic information resources to conduct research and other studies related to the district curriculum

• Inform all students of their rights and responsibilities as users of the district network prior to gaining access to that network, either as an individual user or as a member of a class or group

• Use networked resources in support of educational goals

• Treat student infractions of the Acceptable Use Policy according to the school discipline policy

• Provide alternate activities for students who do not have permission to use the internet

• Comply with CIPA by educating minors about appropriate online behavior, interacting with other individuals on social networking websites and in chat rooms and cyberbullying awareness and response.

• Use due diligence to monitor minors while on the Internet, and faculty and staff will encourage students to be safe online.

Principal Responsibilities

• Include Acceptable Use Policy in student handbook

• Be sure handbooks are distributed to all students

• Treat student infractions of the Acceptable Use Policy according to the school discipline policy

• Keep permission forms on file for one year

• Identify students who do not have permission to use the internet to the teaching staff

• Comply with CIPA by educating all faculty and staff about appropriate online behavior, interacting with other individuals on social networking websites and in chat rooms and cyberbullying awareness and response.

• Insure that teachers are educating students about appropriate online behavior, interacting with other individuals on social networking websites and in chat rooms and cyberbullying awareness and response.

• Insure that all teachers will use due diligence to monitor minors while on the Internet and when using services such as Google Apps for Education email, and insure that faculty and staff will encourage students to be safe online.

District Responsibilities

• Ensure that filtering software is in use to block access to materials that are inappropriate, offensive, obscene, or contain pornography.

• Have Acceptable Use Policy approved by the board and reviewed yearly.

• Monitor network use and filtering for inappropriate activities by users according to the district Internet Monitoring Policy.

It has to be a retired army person with a certain ranking. We have posted this position on our web-site and on the State’s web-side. Dr. Jacqueline Johnson asked about positing our openings on the web-site. She was told that our openings are posted on the State Department’s web-site. President Kelly asked about the Teacher Leader meeting in New Orleans. Superintendent Johnson said this is a big cost to the school board but he has heard that they had some very good sessions. Mrs. Nichols asked about the renovations. Superintendent Johnson said they are working at WES and Fort and doing overlaying at some of the schools. He said we have a good contractor. Superintendent Johnson said we still have to go to August 10th before we can do anything to the Old Baskin School. We are just asking for an 8 week wavier to start now, but he has not heard from anyone. This project will be take approximately 4 weeks for the demolishing.

July 29, 2019

The Franklin Parish School Board met for its regular schedule agenda and committee meetings on Monday, July 29, 2019 at 4:00 p.m. in the Franklin Parish School Board conference room.

Present for the meeting were Mr. Eddie Ray Bryan, Mr. Richard Kelly, Mr. Tim Eubanks, Ms. Mia Dunn and Mrs. Alaina Nichols.

Mr. Danny Davis and Dr. Jacqueline Johnson were absent from the meeting.

President Richard Kelly called the meeting to order, led in prayer and President Kelly led the Pledge of Allegiance.

Mr. Tim Eubanks called the maintenance committee meeting to order. Superintendent Johnson reported that we have purchased 4 new buses. The school board has purchased 8 buses in the last 2 years. This frees up approx. $128,000 per year in bus leases. Superintendent Johnson reported that we have had problems with water leaks across the parish this summer. Our big one is at the High School. This leak may be under the slab. This leak will be costly. The water pipes are old. The building program is on schedule according to the contractor. School Boards are getting cyber hacked. The hackers are requesting a ransom virus. Our system has not been hacked and we are putting safeguards in place. Last thing we are ready for the old Baskin School to be torn down. Contractor will put a fence around building and start demolition on August 10th. We received 3 quotes and the low quote was $75,000. This included the demolition and removal of debris. Superintendent Johnson reported that the carpet has been picked out for the band room. We are resurfacing the gym floor and paint the gym. At Winnsboro Elementary School gym, a 3” slab of concrete is being put down in the gym and then new flooring put down over this. Fort Necessity School parking lot is torn up. The contractor is close to having asphalt being put down. They are close to being finished. Winnsboro Elementary cafeteria will be central air next year. Mr. Eubanks adjourned the maintenance committee meeting.

Mrs. Alaina Nichols called the finance committee meeting to order. Mrs. Rebecca Boquet, Business Manager addressed the Board. Mrs. Boquet has given to the Board financial reports. She told members we are getting our final numbers to auditors. The Robinette firm is still working on audits. We are busy uploading financial information to P & N. We are also working with Software and Services and the cyber ware. We were already getting software in place in case of a disaster. Ms. Boquet said we have to have a disaster recovery plan in place and the cost of this should be around $1500 to 1800 per year. She said that on the financial information in Members packet that at expenditures it is showing a positive balance. Not all the numbers are in for the end of the 2018-19 year. We receive a lot of bills for the 2018-19 school year that we do not get until after fiscal year, like in July. Some Sales Tax funds have not been able to be recorded into the June 30th financials. She reported that our MFP funding was based on 2956 students. We hope to hold steady for the October 1, 2019 count. We will give Board an update when we get this. Mrs. Boquet said that she is getting prepared for the AFR report in Sept. Our auditors from P & N will be here in September for 2 weeks and we are uploading information to them. Mrs. Nichols adjourned the finance committee.

During the business portion of the meeting, President Kelly went over each item on the agenda and each was discussed by Dr. Johnson and the Board. The August meeting will be at 4:00 p.m. The August agenda meeting will be at 5:00 p.m. For the Pupil Progression Plan the only change is defining what we do to determine honor students. Mr. McClary discussed the workstations for H. G. White Learning Center. This will give up more space for students. The Seclusion/Restraint Procedures tracks state law. During the superintendent’s report Dr. Johnson reported that we will not get out of school for election day. Schools will only let out for election on the Presidential election. Superintendent Johnson said that we have hired some certified. Most schools have all their teachers. We have hired more certified teachers this year. We have not had any applications for the ROTC slot. FPHS only has 33 students scheduled for ROTC.

GILBERT WATER SYSTEM

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER

Gilbert Water System failed to take corrective action following identification of a significant deficiency.

On 4/24/19 the Louisiana Department of Health (LDH) performed a detailed inspection and engineering evaluation of our water system called a sanitary survey. During this sanitary survey, they identified one or more significant deficiencies in our system. As our customers, you have a right to know what happened and what we are doing to correct this situation. According to EPA’s Ground Water Rule, we were required to correct the deficiency (or deficiencies) or work with the State to develop a plan to correct the deficiency (or deficiencies). However, we failed to correct the deficiency or contact the State before the established deadline and have therefore violated a requirement of the Ground Water Rule.

What should I do?

There is nothing you need to do. You do not need to boil your water or take other corrective actions. If a situation arises where the water is no longer safe to drink, you will be notified within 24 hours.

What does that mean?

This is not an emergency. If it had been an emergency, you would have been notified within 24 hours.

This significant deficiency has the potential to result in lack of proper treatment and oversight of the water system. Inadequately treated or inadequately protected water may contain disease causing organisms. These organisms can cause symptoms such as diarrhea, nausea, cramps, and associated headaches. While we have not detected any evidence of contamination or other health threats related to our source water, we are still committed to correcting the deficiency to eliminate the threat of contamination.

What was done?

Our water system has resolved any deficiencies that were found and is in contact with LDH.

Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.

For more information, please contact our office at 318-435-6506 or P.O. box 600.
