TECHNOLOGY INFORMATION

Magic City Acceptance Academy (MCAA) believes that access to technology in school gives students greater opportunities to learn, create, communicate, and develop skills that will prepare them for work, life, and citizenship. We expect all students to exercise responsible and ethical behaviors while online as a demonstration of good digital citizenship. We are committed to helping students develop the technology and problem-solving skills necessary to support their future successes. Therefore, we believe all students should have access to technology tools when students act in a responsible and legal manner. The Technology resource Agreement outlines the guidelines and behaviors that students are expected to follow when using school technology resources or when using personally-owned devices on the school campus. Please reference that document for the most updated information.
