Computer Lab 602 RULES


IMPORTANT NOTE: Any class that relies on electronic equipment for instruction must depend on ALL students to help keep the laboratory in good condition. We must make a special effort to use common sense in the treatment of the computers, iPads, laptops, printers, furniture, textbooks, and any other materials, in this classroom. If our equipment does not work, you cannot learn what is intended for you to learn, which means that anyone not using proper judgment must be removed from the equipment. No food or candy or drinks allowed in the lab. NO playing games on the computer unless all work is completed and the teacher has given you permission. Not following this rule could result in losing computer priveleges. Do not move the computer on the table. Instead, you may carefully adjust the monitor and keyboard (keep the keyboard on the table, never on your lap). Do not in any way disassemble, deface, damage, or play with any equipment or materials in the lab. Do not sit on the table or seat backs, and keep your feet off the furniture. No software allowed in the classroom other than the software for the course. Students are to be working on only the software used in the course. DO NOT SAVE ON OR ALTER ANYTHING ON THE HARD DRIVE (C DRIVE) An intentional attempt to do so may result in the student being removed from the computer for the remainder of the course. When your instructor is talking to the class, all students will be listening. No students are to be using the keyboard, or listening to headphones when the instructor is addressing the class as a whole. I understand that all computer hardware, software, data, and files are the property of Grand Ledge High School. Any files, including my own personal files, may be accessed by school personal and may be removed if inappropriate. The use of inappropriate files may result in disciplinary action. I agree to utilize the computer equipment with care, to conduct myself appropriately within the computer lab, and to report any improper use or conduct to the teacher. As you begin using the computer each day, check your area for any possible problems with the equipment and materials or trash left by the preceding student. Notify your instructor immediately if you find any problems. LOG ON with the assigned user name and password. When you finish your work, close your files and LOG OFF. Before leaving, slide the chair up to the table, and pick up any papers around the computer or on the floor.

FAILURE TO FOLLOW THESE PROCEDURES MAY LOWER YOUR GRADE. **The school district reserves the right to seek any property damage or costs incurred as a result of student violation of this policy.**
