IT and use of Internet Policy
The school allocates access to the Internet on the basis of its didactic value. SIS encourages students to make the best use of all technological facilities furnished by the school to shape their academic performance.
The proper use of the Internet is a combined responsibility of students, parents/guardians and staff at school and they should understand the significance of the educational value to be gained from it.
Appropriate planning and management that recognizes the risks can ensure accurate, effective and safe use of Internet. All students and their parents are liable to sign an undertaking that the students will use the systems responsibly and according to the laws of the Government of India. In particular, students will not attempt to gain unauthorized access to any other computer system or go beyond the school authorized access account. This includes attempting to log in through another person's account or access another person's files.
Students will not access or download material from inappropriate sites or pass such material to other students. Students will not bring any material that school finds unsuitable or objectionable. The school reserves the right to monitor the use of computers by its students within its network by any reasonable means. Students found misusing the system will face severe consequences which may result in confiscation of laptops, denial of access to the system, penalty or expulsion from the school depending on the gravity of the offence.
At SIS, it is our priority to ensure that all students understand and respect the meaning and significance of academic honesty. It not only refers to original authorship and ownership of creative/research material but also to proper conduct in relation to written exams. Plagiarism, cheating and collusion in examinations are unacceptable and will be penalized.
Students of the DP only are permitted to possess a cell phone, however policies at school require that they are turned off and deposited with Dean - administration during school hours. PYP and MYP / IGSE are strictly prohibited from using or carrying mobile phones, if found will be confiscated. Students are permitted to use their cell phones before and after school hours only.
It is not obligatory for students to possess mobile phones as the school holds an extensive network of landlines and fixed cellular services which can be utilized by Parents and Students.
