Technology Services & Use Agreements
The Bulloch County Board of Education recognizes that as telecommunications and other new technology change the ways that information may be accessed, communicated and transferred by members of society, those changes may also alter instruction and student learning. The Board generally supports access by students to rich information resources along with the development by staff of appropriate skills to analyze and evaluate such resources.
The Bulloch County Board of Education makes available to its students and employees a wide variety of media resources in each school building, including electronic media such as the Internet. Electronic information research skills are now fundamental to the preparation of citizens and future employees during an age of information. The Board expects employees will blend thoughtful use of such information throughout the curriculum and that employees will provide guidance and instruction to students in the appropriate use of such resources.

Students have access to all tools within the Google Workspace for Education, with the exception of Google+ unless specifically allowed by parents. Access to Google Workspace for Education includes G-Email, Google Drive, Google Docs, Calendar, Google Classroom, YouTube, etc. All web traffic accessed on school property is appropriately filtered according to current Children's Internet Protection Act compliance requirements.

The Board believes that the benefits to students from access in the form of information resources and opportunities for collaboration exceed the disadvantages.
