III. Web Page Content
The content of the Web page will be consistent with our
goals to keep the public informed of our activities and to aid in the success of
our educational program. At the same time every effort will be taken to ensure
and protect the privacy of all involved in our school.
A. Use of student pictures or work
Use of student pictures (video or still) and audio
clips on the District web page must have a signed parent/guardian approval
on file. This includes both individual and group pictures. Web sites/pages
must be designed to protect students, families, employees and any other
persons from unwanted disclosure of personally identifying information. Web
pages may include only the first name and the initial of the studentís
last name. Pages or filenames may not include a studentís phone number,
address, e-mail address or names of other family members or friends.
Teaching staff or other school personnel may be
identified by full name, but other private information may not be used
without their specific express permission.
Parental permission must also be given for the
use/publication of student work for students at the elementary level. This
permission can be obtained on a yearly, rather than a per incident basis.
See appendix for form. Student work at the secondary level does not need
parental permission to be included on the web site, but rather, written
permission by the student.
B. Student Generated Web Sites
In cases where students work with a staff member in
the construction and maintenance of a web site/page, the staff member is
responsible for ensuring that students have the necessary technical training
and that they fully understand and adhere to District policies and
The Webmaster, Administration, and School Board have
the final say in what appears on the web page.
The district reserves the right to remove and/or not
post any part of the Web page that it deems to be legally, morally, or
ethically inappropriate or any page not in the best interest of the school.
IV. Use of the Le Roy Central School
District name by outside sources
Organizations outside the school may use the Le Roy
Central School District name with written permission from the Superintendent,
BOE, or other designee.
The district will do all that it can to keep its pages
clean of viruses, and to be compatible with all major operating systems.
However, the district does not accept responsibility if something on the pages
causes a viewerís system to crash.
