In accordance with goals established in Wilkes County Board of Education policy 6500, Goals of Equipment, Materials and Supplies Services, the Board of Education and superintendent will strive to make computers available to all students and to personnel who would be assisted by them.
All computers are under the control of the Board of Education, including hardware, software, and all data stored on computers.
All laws, including copyright laws, will be obeyed in the use of computers. Under no circumstance may software purchased by the school district be copied for personal use.
To encourage the effective use of computers in the classroom, the superintendent is encouraged to work with teachers and principals in developing administrative procedures for making computers available to teachers for training purposes. Such administrative procedures may provide for allowing teachers to take computers home as a regular part of instructional planning or professional development.
