This podcast is a recording of a presentation by Celynda Brashner, an attorney, at the METC Conference in St. Louis today. The conference program description of her presentation was: Presentation will be addressing practical policy and legal issues associated with the use of technology in the schools. This is intended to be an interactive process. You will be encouraged to ask questions, share experiences and obtain information that will assist school districts and related entities in developing and implementing appropriate policy and procedures. Will also examine how the law and common sense can be combined to facilitate effective policy development and implementation. Some specific subjects that will be addressed include governing statutes and constitutional provisions; misuse of district systems and equipment; student or employee-created websites, blogs and other postings; use of technology to document student misconduct; investigating employee misconduct; maintaining a chain of custody; and specific court cases directly related to technology in schools. We will also address the new (and very scary) federal rules of civil procedure pertaining specifically to the preservation and discovery of electronic records. It is important for all school employees and officials to be aware of these new and very strict rules.
