Plan Goals:

The purpose of the C.C.H.S. Internet Safety Plan is to provide awareness for students in using the Internet and the importance of maintaining safe practices on the Internet.  The release of private information on the Internet can have serious consequences.  Students also need to be able to recognize inappropriate uses of the Internet and avoid violations of protected information.  It is the goal of this plan to provide knowledge of the ramifications of Internet abuse and instruction on safe Internet practices.

 

Stakeholders:

All C.C.H.S. Faculty and Staff members are responsible to utilize safe Internet practices and responsible for the instruction of students on the techniques of Internet safety.  The entire school and all members of the community have a stake in the utilization of the Internet in the best possible manner.  The Internet Safety Plan will be utilized in various aspects of the curriculum and will be posted to the district website.  All activities and functions of the school district will maintain good Internet etiquette and responsible usage of the Internet.
