Student Privacy, Safety, and Digital Citizenship
While your child is working from home, it's important to ensure proper supervision of technology use. If your child is logged into a district-issued Chromebook using assigned Walnut Creek School District Google accounts (@walnutcreeksd.org), browsing is filtered to limit access to appropriate sites. Our best efforts to filter student browsing while off-campus is not a substitute for parental oversight of student work to ensure they are compliant with Digital Citizenship guidelines and Walnut Creek School District's Board policy for Student Use of Technology.
Please review Student Use of Technology Board Policy (BP 163.4) with your child.
Parents too have responsibilities to adhere to appropriate Digital Citizenship. Please follow these guidelines:
- Do not take pictures or screenshots of online activities that include students other than your own.
- Do not interact with others through your child's SeeSaw or Google Classroom.
- Ensure your child adheres to Digital Citizenship expectations. You may review the Digital Citizenship slides on the right with your child.
