Technology Acceptable Use Guidelines Relating to HIDOE-owned or Leased Digital Devices, Network, and Internet Services
(for students and parents at the Hawaii State Department of Education)

The Hawaii State Department of Education (HIDOE) is committed to guiding students in their use of technology as a tool to support effective instruction and increase student achievement. HIDOE encourages the use of HIDOE-owned or leased digital devices, network, and internet services for educational programs within the framework of these acceptable use guidelines.
Parents and Guardians (hereafter collectively referred to as “Parent” or “Parents”) should review the guidelines with their child. Upon completion of reviewing the guidelines, both the Parent and the child should sign the attached Agreement form. The signed agreement form should be returned to the school so the student may begin using HIDOE-owned or leased digital devices, network/internet services, as well as online educational services.

HIDOE reserves the right to modify the terms and conditions of these acceptable use guidelines at any time. Students shall abide by all rules, regulations, and guidelines relating to the use of HIDOE-owned or leased digital devices, network/internet services as may be changed or added from time to time by HIDOE.
