Technology

At Conemaugh Township Area School District, we recognize that technology can be a powerful learning tool and a great way for students, parents, and teachers to stay connected. We have recently upgraded our district phone system, installed fiber optic cable and new wireless capabilities in our schools, and successfully implemented Power School in an effort to enhance the instruction of our students and provide a 21st Century education. Our Technology Department provides all the necessary support and maintenance to keep our district’s technology infrastructure working efficiently.

If you have technology-related questions, we welcome you to contact one of our specialists and allow us to assist you.

Use of District Technology

Conemaugh Township provides current technology to support student research and education and to encourage efficient communication between staff and families. We define ‘appropriate use’ as use of technology and/or Internet resources for the purpose of enhancing curriculum and/or instruction. While we actively monitor Internet traffic and use specialized software to filter and block access to non-educational websites, we expect students and staff to act responsibly in their use of the provided technologies by protecting our network and the rights of others. We encourage parents to actively monitor their child's academic progress by utilizing PowerSchool and maintaining an open line of communication with their child(ren)’s teachers.

District technology may not be used for:

  • Any illegal, commercial, or for-profit activities
  • Non-work/non-school related work
  • Advertisement or political lobbying
  • Personal e-mail, message forums, chat rooms, texting
  • Unauthorized installation/modification of software/files
  • Distribution/reproduction of copyrighted materials
  • Access to obscene or pornographic material
  • Inappropriate language or profanity
  • Transmission of offensive material
  • Identity theft or impersonation
  • Disruption of other users’ work

The building administrator has the final authority to determine what is ‘appropriate use.’ Failure to follow these guidelines may result in a loss of privilege or suspension.

Use of Personal Technology

CTASD does not allow the use of personal communication devices, including cell phones, during the school day. In order to protect personal student property and ensure a safe and productive learning environment, we do not recommend that students bring personal electronic devices to school. All radios, MP3s, iPods, cellular phones, smart phones, games, and paging devices must remain off and in the student’s locker or bag throughout the day. Faculty and staff may confiscate any equipment, including cell phones, which are seen during the day. In case of emergency, please contact your child through the school office.
