Teacher Stuff
  1. Your username for all applications should always be your full first name – a period – your full last name, as in "craig.whitmore". 
  2. Teachers should maintain a "web presence" for each content class they teach (through either an Edlio webpage, a Google Classroom class, or a Canvas course) to provide information and assignments for students and parents on a weekly basis.
  3. All teachers are encouraged to make use of Google Drive (Back Up and Sync) to maintain an online backup of their important school data throughout the year.
  4. Remember that everything done on your teacher computer (even personal, non-school matters) is potentially open to the district.  While the district does not forbid us from making online personal purchases, keeping up with personal email, etc., please do not abuse this privilege or let it interfere with teaching duties.
  5. All content area classes will have a class set of Chromebooks.  Teachers can also signup for class time in the Library Macintosh Computer Lab.
  6. You can find additional help on the District Tech Knowledge Base Page (see above), sending an email to help@norris.k12.ca.us, or contacting Craig Whitmore (ext. 7102).
 
Student Stuff
  1. Students will be cleared to use school computers by the Library or Office.
  2. Students should not access websites or applications that are not approved by their teachers.
  3. Students are not to access online video streaming or social networking sites, unless directed to by a teacher for instructional purposes.
