DIGITAL GUIDELINES AND EXPECTATIONS

While New York City school buildings will be closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year, we continue to support our students and families during our period of remote learning. We want to ensure that our students are able to engage online safely and respectfully. Please review the following guidelines carefully as they outline expectations and responsibilities of students, parents/guardians and teachers.

 

ONLINE GUIDELINES

Daily Expectations:

  • Students should be logging on to their Google Classroom daily.

  • Students should complete the attendance form in their Google Classroom daily.

  • Students can and should be discussing their work with parents.

  • Students should reach out to their teachers for additional support through either Google Classroom or ClassDojo.

  • Parents should visit ClassDojo for notices and updates and messages from their classroom and cluster teachers.

  • Parents should check in with their child about their Google Classrooms and progress. Please ensure that your child is submitting their assignments, whether that be daily or weekly as assigned by their teachers.

  • Students with IEPs (Individual Education Plans) should be in contact with their Related Service Providers (Speech, OT/PT, Counseling) and attend their scheduled service sessions.

 

STUDENT RESPONSIBILITIES

Students must:

  • Collaborate in positive ways that help all involved learn.

  • Use technology to support an inclusive school community.

  • Be cautious to protect your personal information and that of other students.

  • Alert a teacher or other staff member if you witness threatening, inappropriate or harmful content (images, messages, posts) online. We take cyber-bullying seriously.

  • Join Google Meet, Zoom or other virtual platforms ONLY when the teacher is present.


Students must not:

  • Open messages from unknown senders. If the sender is not a P.S. 92 staff member, do not open the message and do not respond. 

  • Engage in cyber-bullying, harassment, or disrespectful content toward others. 

  • Use a school account to send spam or chain emails.

  • Use language online that would be unacceptable in the classroom. Students are expected to demonstrate positive behaviors in alignment with the Department of Education's Citywide Behaviors to Support Student Learning.

  • Attempt to join a Google Meet session or linger in a Hangout without the teacher present.

STUDENT PERSONAL SAFETY AND PRIVACY

  • Students should never share personal information without adult permission, which includes:

    • Their full name

    • Their phone number

    • Their address

    • Their birth date

    • Their age

  • Students should recognize that communicating over the Internet brings anonymity and associated risks, and should carefully safeguard the personal information of themselves and others.

  • Students should never agree to meet a person they have met online without parental permission. If students see a message, comment, image or anything else online that makes them concerned, they should bring it to the attention of an adult immediately.

PARENT RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Ensure that your child acts appropriately and responsibly online. This includes knowing and understanding the Discipline Code, Internet Acceptable Use and Safety Policy (IAUSP), and Social Media Guidelines for Students 12 and Younger.

  • Keep track of your child's online use when they are not in school - including mobile apps, online games and other social media platforms (Tik-Tok, Instagram, Snapchat, etc.).

  • Speak with your child about what is - and is not - acceptable online behavior.
