Summary: These draft policies were created in Committee with the support of Julie Braun-Martin, Deb Cooksey, Lois Peterson, Felicia Stuckey-Smith, Ann Tirrell, Lorie O'Brien, Joe Estrada and Joshua Wittman. Through a partnership with the Technology Advisory Committee (TAC), Cabinet and Principals, Staff has prepared revisions to the Board Policy and the Administrative Regulations to facilitate understanding and best practices in regards to technology use around the district. Responsible Use Policies were previously referred to as Acceptable Use Policies in MDUSD.

There are three Responsible Use Policies for students, broken down by grade level, an Employee Responsible Use Policy, Video Monitoring Policy and Social Media Policy. The Social Media and Video Monitoring Policies are new board policies.

The current board policy for the use of Cellular Phone (BP3513_1) is also included in this docket. There is some language in the new Social Media and Employee Acceptable Use Policies that covers how the phones should be used rather than the current policy that covers the cellular phone allowance and IRS regulations. The current Use of Technology in Instruction Policy (BP6162_7) covers how technology can help teachers, and would be remain in place as a board policy.

Although significantly different than the original, the Employee Responsible Use Policy (RUP) is a revision of BP4040.
