CENTER GROVE COMMUNITY SCHOOL CORPORATION
INTERNET SAFETY & TECHNOLOGYStudents will utilize a variety of instructional technology devices during their time here at Center Grove. Apple iPads in grades K-2 and 6-12, while grades 3-5 utilize Google Chromebooks. K-5 devices are kept at school unless directed to be taken home by school administrators. Examples for students taking devices home include scheduled e-learning days or in cases of inclement weather. Grades 6-12 is a full 1:1 deployment where the student is responsible for their school issued device and is taken to and from school every day. The devices allow us to provide a personalized instructional approach to learning and increase student engagement.With technology comes the need for responsibility from the student. Center Grove encourages parents to review with their students the corporation's Acceptable Use Policy and the discipline code in the student handbooks. Student handbooks can be found on each school’s website. It is the responsibility of parents and students to know what is right and what is wrong in the use of technology.
We also encourage parents to monitor the technology their children are using at home. Resources are available upon request.Internet SafetyCenter Grove complies with CIPA rules & regulations and provides safe and educational internet filtering for all devices connected to the CG network.
