The Governing Board recognizes that technology can enhance employee performance by improving access to and exchange of information, offering effective tools to assist in providing a quality instructional program, and facilitating operations. The Board expects all employees to learn to use the available electronic resources that will assist them in their jobs. As needed, staff shall receive training in the appropriate use of these resources.

Employees shall be responsible for the appropriate use of technology and shall use the district's electronic resources only for purposes related to their employment. Such use is a privilege which may be revoked at any time.

(cf. 4119.25/4219.25/4319.25 - Political Activities of Employees)

Employees should be aware that computer files and communications over electronic networks, including e-mail and voice mail, are not private. This technology should not be used to transmit confidential information about students, employees, or district affairs.

To ensure proper use, the Superintendent or designee may monitor the district's technological resources, including e-mail and voice mail systems, at any time without advance notice or consent. If passwords are used, they must be known to the Superintendent or designee so that he/she may have system access when the employee is absent.

The Superintendent or designee shall establish administrative regulations which outline employee obligations and responsibilities related to the use of technology. Employees who fail to abide by these regulations shall be subject to disciplinary action, revocation of the user account, and legal action as appropriate.

(cf. 4118 - Suspension/Disciplinary Action)

(cf. 4218 - Dismissal/Suspension/Disciplinary Action)

The Superintendent or designee may establish guidelines and limits on the use of technological resources. He/she shall ensure that all employees using these resources receive copies of related policies, regulations and guidelines. Employees shall be asked to acknowledge in writing that they have read and understood these policies, regulations and guidelines.

(cf. 4112.9/4212.9/4312.9 - Employee Notifications)

In the event that the use of an electronic resource affects the working conditions of one or more employees, the Superintendent or designee shall notify the employees' exclusive representative.
