The Hawaii State Department of Education (HIDOE) is committed to guiding students in their use of technology as a tool to support their achievement and encourages their use of HIDOE-owned or leased digital devices, network, and internet services for educational programs within the framework of its responsible use guidelines. Parents and legal guardians with their child, should review the guidelines and sign the Technology Responsible Use Form (“TRUF”), which should be returned to the child’s school. The signed forms constitute an understanding and an agreement to abide by all rules, regulations, and guidelines relating to the use of HIDOE-owned or leased digital devices, network, and internet services, which may be modified or expanded as needed by HIDOE. The most recent version of these guidelines is available at http://bit.ly/FERPAHI.
The use of HIDOE-owned or leased digital devices, network, and internet services is a privilege, not a right. The duty to educate students about responsible and appropriate use of the Internet and digital devices is shared by parents, teachers, and schools. It is the responsibility of students and parents to ensure that HIDOE-owned or leased digital devices, network, and internet services are used in accordance with these responsible use guidelines.
All students must have this form signed in order to access our electronic devices and use the internet for the curriculum, assessments, browsing, educational tools, google drive, etc. Please help us by returning your child's form as soon as possible.
