District 1:1 Technology
Conestoga Valley School District provides all students with 1:1 technology for education purposes in line with the District’s Mission. All technology provided is property of the Conestoga Valley School District and any damage to the device, chargers, cases, or other components or loss of any property will incur a fine. Use of district technology is governed by School Board Policy 239 and provided under the Acceptable Use Policy.
Acceptable Internet Use
Use of the Internet shall be limited to educational and instructional purposes related to the curriculum. All persons who access the Internet must conduct themselves in a responsible, ethical, and polite manner while using the network. Before initially having access to the Internet, students must complete an Internet Utilization Form, which includes parent/guardian approval. If parents/guardians prefer that their children do not have access to the Internet under any circumstances, they should send their request in writing to the building principal on an annual basis.
Students are only permitted to use cell phones under the direction of a teacher or administrator. Students should not assume it is their right or privilege to use personal devices, including cell phones, during the school day. Use of a cell phone includes, but is not limited to, communicating with others using the cell phone, texting, taking pictures, video recording, audio recording, or accessing or attempting to access the Internet. The above mentioned use will result in school disciplinary action and, if applicable, may result in police action.

- 2nd Offense is a Level II Offense -- The cell phone and all its contents are confiscated; only returned to the parents with the appropriate disciplinary action taken.
- Subsequent offenses are considered a Level III Offense and may result in suspension and will result in confiscation of the cell phone and all its contents; returned only to the parent.
Community Web Portal
CVSD’s Community Web Portal allows parents to access their child’s classroom progress, homework assignments, and teacher comments. A new Community Web Portal was approved by the school board during the 2022-23 school year and is expected to be implemented prior to the start of the 2023-24 school year. Information regarding the new portal, how to create accounts, how to utilize the portal, etc. will be added to the district website and communicated to parents and staff prior to implementation of the new web portal.
