Welcome to WMS 7th Grade Computer Science Class!
In the middle school, students become familiar with computer networks, equipment and the richness of the Internet. It is the intent to increase the knowledge and ease of use of technology for all students, as computers and the Internet are increasingly a part of their lives and futures.
The Waupaca School District supports the ethical use of computers and safe and responsible online behavior. Technology is presented in a manner that fosters learning and encourages students and faculty to stretch their intellectual limits.

2008-09 Waupaca Middle School Computer Technology ---- Rules
Waupaca Middle School’s technology consists of a variety of computers, multi-media equipment and access to the Internet.
For obvious reasons there is the need for emphasis on the proper and ethical use of this equipment. With these issues in mind we have selected the following guidelines for the use of technology at WMS:
1. Students will use technology with respect to the proper care and function of the equipment. Any student found to be intentionally damaging any hardware or software will be cited for school property abuse.
2. Using words, ideas, images or data of another person as the student’s own is considered plagiarism.
3. You will not be permitted to bring CD’s from home to listen or load programs on the school machines. You are also not allowed to download files from the Internet to the school network.
4. Students’ actions will be monitored and they will be held responsible for information viewed, received and sent when using the Internet. The use of online services should also be restricted to school related projects. You are not allowed to check your email here at school
5. Respect for the personal data created by others including students, and teachers will be maintained. Students are not permitted to change, delete or alter anyone else’s files. You should not try to alter the computer system of any computer in the building.
You will be held responsible for information viewed, received, manipulated and sent via the Internet
Four basic rules cover behavior:
1. Work quietly without disturbing others.
2. Listen carefully and follow directions.
3. Use time wisely. (Don’t be tardy)
4. Respect for others. (Treat others as you would want to be treated)
In all things in computers and with technology - Be smart!!
