Lamar County Schools Technology/Media Usage Agreement

To ensure that students receive a quality education and that employees are able to work in a professional and intellectually stimulating environment, it is the policy of Lamar County Schools to provide all students and employees with access to a variety of technology resources. The creation of a large and varied technology environment demands that technology usage be conducted in legally and ethically appropriate ways. In that regard, Lamar County Schools will need Parent/Guardian permission for students to have computer access while at school. Students may not be allowed computer access until this form has been completed, signed, and returned. If you have specific questions regarding the policy, please contact the principal at your school. The primary goal of the technology environment is to support the educational and instructional endeavors of the students and employees of Lamar County Schools. Use of any and all technology resources is a privilege and not a right. The Lamar County Schools technology policy can be found on the county's school websites.

A student's name and/or photograph may be featured on the school's website and/or by television stations or newspapers.
