The Nevada Action Group COVID-19 Response, Relief and Recovery Task Force, in coordination with community partners, has launched a national initiative to connect our students to Internet services and devices. Parents/guardians can view their online registration selection (OLR) to the Authorized Use Directive by registering with the parents` portal on campus portal.ccsd.net and clicking on Plus, then only on the parents` online registration PARENTS. The selection can be viewed in the summary of OLR`s PDF application. If a parent/guardian wishes to change their selection for UPA, they can apply to the child`s school to complete an annual CCF-588 sharing and networked access form. Students do not have access to a system or device if a parent/facilitator chooses “No” during the Online Registration Process (ERR), is asked to approve the Acceptable Use Policy (UPA) or has completed a CCF-588 form indicating that they do not give their students permission to access district network resources. Parents and students must sign and return the agreement on mobile devices before the device can be issued to the student. At CCSD, change is through Mobile Device Initiatives. The Clark County School District`s mission says, “Students will have the knowledge, skills, attitudes and ethics to succeed academically and exercise responsible citizenship.” This vision refers, among other things, to a student`s ability to maximize the use of personal technology equipment and relevant technologies to acquire, share, evaluate and create digital information, achieve media and technology skills, and maintain a safe and ethical online environment. In collaboration with and after contributions from parents, teachers, school leaders and district leaders, the Clark County School District Policy 5136, Personal Communication Devices, has been modified to allow the use of personal technology and communication equipment during school hours, with the agreement of the site manager. This Bring-Your-Own Device (BYOD) directive includes mobile phones, laptops, tablets or other similar electronic devices.
CcSD works to ensure that all students and families who express their equipment needs are provided with appropriate resources, including access to the internet, as we prepare for future technological access to one for all. The GoGuardian filter is provided for user nv.ccsd.net student accounts. It is applied whenever a student logs on to Chrome OS or the Chrome browser with their nv.ccsd.net account, whether the device was issued by CCSD.
