The Internet is a unique opportunity to enhance instructional methods, appeal to different learning styles, and meet the educational goals of the board. Through the Internet, users can observe events as they occur around the world, interact with others on a variety of subjects, and acquire access to current and in-depth information.
As the Internet is made available in the schools, the use of the Internet should be integrated into the educational program. The Internet should be used in teaching the North Carolina Standard Course of Study and in meeting the educational goals of the board. The curriculum committee should provide suggestions for using the Internet in the curriculum guides as provided in board policy 3115, Curriculum and Instructional Guides. Teachers are encouraged to further incorporate the use of the Internet into their lesson plans.
The superintendent shall ensure that school district computers with Internet access comply with federal requirements regarding filtering software and Internet safety policies. The superintendent shall develop any regulations necessary to meet such requirements and will submit any certifications necessary to meet the requirements of the Children's Internet Protection Act.
