Policies and Procedures

ACCEPTABLE USE POLICY

The computing resources at Mitchell County High School support the educational, instructional, research, and administrative activities of the University and the use of these resources is a privilege that is extended to members of the Eagle community. As a user of these services and facilities, you have access to valuable school resources, to sensitive data, and to internal and external networks. Consequently, it is important for you to behave in a responsible, ethical, and legal manner.

In general, acceptable use means respecting the rights of other computer users, the integrity of the physical facilities and all pertinent license and contractual agreements. If an individual is found to be in violation of the Acceptable Use Policy, the school will take disciplinary action, including the restriction and possible loss of network privileges. A serious violation could result in more serious consequences, up to and including suspension or termination from the school. Individuals are also subject to federal, state and local laws governing many interactions that occur on the Internet. These policies and laws are subject to change as state and federal laws develop and change.

This document establishes specific requirements for the use of all computing and network resources at Mitchell County High School.

Employee Use Standards
The purpose of this policy is to set forth policies and guidelines for access to the school district computer system and acceptable use of the Internet.
 
INTERNET USER GUIDELINE
An internet user guideline provides employees with rules and guidelines about the appropriate use of company equipment, network and Internet access. Having such a policy in place helps to protect both the business and the employee; the employee will be aware that browsing certain sites or downloading files is prohibited and that the policy must be adhered to or there could be serious repercussions, thus leading to fewer security risks for the business as a result of employee negligence. The Internet Usage Policy is an important document that must be signed by all employees upon starting work. Below is our policy here at MCHS.
COLLECTION AND DEVELOPMENT POLICY

The Mitchell County High School collects materials, in a variety of popular formats, which support its function as a major information source for the demanding needs of a metropolitan population. The collection also serves the general educational interest, recreational, and entertainment needs of the public, and reflects the racial, ethnic and cultural diversity of the community. 

Widespread interest and usage are the most powerful influence on the Library’s collection. The other driving force is the Library’s strategic plan.
