Discipline policy for all devices• This has been explained to all students:1. In form class verbally and with a visual presentation2. At numerous form assemblies3. Teachable moments in subject classes4. They all signed an IT agreement when they were enrolledinto year 9.
The policy:• All students should be fully engaged in every lesson. If they are off task with things like games, social networks like Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr, on Trade Me or any activity which is deemed to impinge negatively on their learning, the student will be banned from the Internet for one week.• This is documented on Kamar.• If this type of distraction is noted again, Mark or Linda will contact parents and an agreement is reached regarding the conﬁscation of the device. The time period is again a week.• The student is called in and the procedure is explained. All work missed at school must be caught up for homework.
Why the weeks conﬁscation?• It is more serious than a phone/ iPod.• It is not like a phone which is simply a distraction. • The device is integral to learning. Students need to learn to manage time and manage self.• The loss of the device affects not only work but also their social life.• Second offenses have included using someone elses login when the student has been excluded from the net.
Facebook• It is a life skill that students need to learn: time and place. The time and place for Facebook is not in class.• It is a good idea to have your child as a friend on your account. In this way you can monitor some of the activity AND the time posts and comments are made.• We have reminded students that anything sent to Facebook can be used as evidence, so they should post wisely.• They have also been reminded that they are leaving a traceable digital trail, not conﬁned to FB.
