    Instruction

    SUBJECT: USE OF ELECTRONIC MEDIA

                The Board of Education encourages the appropriate use of instructional media (e.g. videos, DVDs, web-based products, etc.)

                The Board believes instructional time is precious.  All use of electronic media shall be standards-based and consistent with highly developed lesson plans.  Care should be taken to avoid inappropriate or over use of such media.  In addition, teachers should not use materials with a media rating inappropriate for their student-age level, i.e., G, PG-13.  Any use of "R" rated material requires the prior approval of the building principal.

                The administration shall consistently evaluate the use of electronic media as part of a total approach to effective teaching and learning and shall support such usage and guide teachers in the event such use is in appropriate.
