TISD Acceptable Use Policy and Digital Citizenship

TISD Technology Resources Acceptable Use Policy

It is essential that students, parents and staff understand Internet safety and digital citizenship and the rules of safe and purposeful online communication. To this end Tomball ISD has established an Acceptable Use Policy to address these areas of concern while utilizing technology resources at school.  In addition, we have provided links to additional online resources to help ensure that our students, parents, and staff can increase their chances of having a safe, positive, and rewarding online experience outside of school.

Digital Citizenship Resources

In Tomball ISD, we want to prepare our students for a technology rich future. With that in mind we want our students to work and play in a safe environment while online, but know that sometimes that does not happen. To help prepare our students to navigate the digital world we are incorporating Google's Be Internet Awesome program.

"To make the most of the Internet, kids need to be prepared to make smart decisions. Be Internet Awesome teaches kids the fundamentals of digital citizenship and safety so they can explore the online world with confidence."
