Internet and Related Technologies
Learning is a life long process. Equipping students to learn is teaching them to use resources. In the Diocese of Gaylord we teach students to use the resources of their own mind as well as the resources print, television, video, computers and other technology.
The curriculum guidelines for all grade levels (K-12) in the Diocese of Gaylord Catholic Schools can be found within our Catholic School Policy Handbook, Section 5000, Curriculum/Instruction.
The Diocese of Gaylord strongly promotes the use of electronic technologies in the educational process. The use of technology with the schools of the Diocese of Gaylord is a privilege extrended to students and faculty members to enhance learning and exchange information. When using the technology, the user must realize that he/she represents the Catholic community, and therefore must uphold Christian ethical and legal requirements. All users shall abide by school Acceptable Use Policies. Access privileges may be revoked for inappropriate use, and school disciplinary action may take place and/or appropriate legal action for violations that may constitute a criminal offense.
