Internet Safety


It is the policy of educational programs governed by the Archdiocesan Catholic School Board to require the ethical use of the Internet and related technologies by all employees, volunteers and students. (AFFC/ACSB #2511, AFFC/ACSB #5144.3) Access privileges may be revoked, school disciplinary action may be taken, and/or appropriate legal action taken for any violation that is unethical and may constitute a criminal offense.

La Salle Catholic School uses an internet filter to block against adult-related sites and illegal activity. The filter blocks adware, sites that advertise drugs and alcohol, gambling and dating sites, sites with nudity or pornography, and sites that allow users to surf or send e-mails anonymously. Students use computers and the internet to research academic topics as part of class assignments. Teachers instruct and guide students on proper use. Students use Google docs with an individual address and log-in but students do not have access to e-mail. Teachers discuss appropriate online behavior, including interacting with other individuals on social networking websites and in chat rooms, and cyberbullying awareness and response in age-appropriate terms and grade levels.

Parents are invited to offer input and feedback at any time by e-mailing the school at shucker@lasalle.pvt.k12.ia.us.
