Empowered Technology Use

The Empowered Use Policy is designed to start with trust. We trust in you to use your devices appropriately and safely, and to ask for help when you need it. The Empowered Use Policy applies to both personal and school owned devices.

If you have questions, please ask your homeroom teacher, or any other staff member at Connect.
