The purpose of this information is to assist our students in understanding proper classroom behavior. The classroom should be a learning centered environment in which the teacher and the students are unhindered by disruptive behavior. Students are expected to maintain proper decorum in the classroom. Junior Academy for Coding Knowledge, Inc. (JACK) is an institution that promotes the free exchange of ideas. However, students must adhere to the rules set forth by the teacher.
Junior Academy for Coding Knowledge, Inc. (JACK) believes that technology can be a tool for enhancing student learning experiences in and out of the classroom. JACK encourages a dialogue between parents and students in making decisions regarding technology. The school provides considerable freedom to students in their use of technology.
Junior Academy for Coding Knowledge, Inc. (JACK) provides internet access inside the school premises. The parents/guardians should be warned that some material accessible via the internet might contain items that are illegal, defamatory, inaccurate, or potentially offensive to some people. While our intent is to make technological access controversial materials. We believe that the benefits to students from access to the internet, in the form of information resources and opportunities for collaboration, exceed any disadvantages. But ultimately, parents and guardians of minors are responsible for setting and conveying the standards that their children should follow when using media and information sources. To that end, JACK supports and respects each parents/guardians rights to decide on standards for access.

Individual users of the computer networks and equipment are responsible for their behavior and communications over those networks. During class, teachers will guide students toward appropriate materials. Outside of school premises, parents/guardians bear the same responsibility for such guidance. Faculty members may limit computer access based on need with academic use taking precedent over all other uses.
