CYBERSAFETY

Cybersafety 

At Henry Ford Academy our goal is to teach students the appropriate use of technology. 

Henry Ford Academy policy (2017-18 Student Handbook): 

INAPPROPRIATE DIGITAL POSTINGS

Students involved in posting or sharing inappropriate texts, pictures, or videos will be subject to the same consequence as the person(s)/perpetrator(s) in the text, picture, video, or social media site.  These postings may include, but are not limited to: fighting, sexually explicit pictures/videos, use of language to demean, harass, or bully someone.  (For example, a bystander who videotapes a fight and posts it to YouTube will receive the same consequence as those fighting in the video.)
