Use of District Technology
Pittsburg Unified School District provides current technology to support student research and education and to encourage efficient communication between staff and families. We define ‘appropriate use’ as use of technology and/or Internet resources for the purpose of enhancing curriculum and/or instruction. While we actively monitor Internet traffic and use specialized software to filter and block access to non-educational websites, we expect students and staff to act responsibly in their use of the provided technologies by protecting our network and the rights of others. We encourage parents to actively monitor their student’s academic progress by maintaining an open line of communication with their child(ren)’s teachers.
