Welcome to Littleton Public Schools! We are pleased to have you be a part of our team as a guest teacher this school
year.
Every guest teacher is an important member of the instructional staff. The service a guest teacher provides to the
district is very necessary. Regardless of the reason for the absence of the regular teacher, the opportunities for
pupils to learn cannot be sacrificed. Since instruction must continue, services of dependable, well-prepared guest
teachers are essential.
The desire to guest teach indicates an interest in and a desire to promote the educational opportunity of students.
Furthermore, it implies a willingness to be alert and imaginative in meeting the challenges of changing assignments
from day-to-day.
An environment that gives encouragement to a guest teacher and is conducive to teaching comes from the combined
efforts of the principal, teacher, and students. Consequently, the degree of success a guest teacher may experience is
related directly to the preparation of all parties involved.
A successfully completed assignment will result in satisfaction for the students in doing profitable work, for the
guest teacher in a job well done, and for the regular teacher in knowing that the day’s objectives were attained.
Substitute/Guest Teacher Definition
“Substitute/guest teacher” means a person who normally performs services as an employee of a school district for
part or all of a regular school day, but works on one continuous assignment for a total of less than 90 regular school
days. (Please note that one-half days do not count toward the total number of teaching days.)
Guest Teacher Requirements
All persons interested in guest teaching should complete the licensed application available on-line at
littletonpublicschools.net. Under Employment Preferences, the box indicating application for substitute teaching
should be checked. This is the same application used for all teacher applicants. A Colorado Teaching Certificate or
Five-Year Substitute Teaching Authorization, transcripts, and letters of reference should be scanned into the
applicant file. If this is not possible, the copies of the information can be delivered to the Human Resources Office.
Only complete applications will be accepted. You are expected to read this handbook completely and familiarize
yourself with the principles and concepts within. Only under special circumstances can a substitute teacher hold a
three-year or one-year authorization (permission granted by the Director of Human Resources).
Taking an oath of allegiance is mandatory by law for teachers in the state of Colorado. This oath will be
administered during employee orientation.
It is the responsibility of the guest teacher to maintain a valid Colorado Teaching Certificate. In the event your
certificate expires, you will not be called to guest teach until you bring your new certificate in to be verified and
copied for your personnel file. Full-time teacher applicants must file a separate application with the Human
Resource office. See the CDE website (www.cde.state.co.us) for frequently asked questions (FAQs) regarding
substitute teaching authorization requirements.
* * * PLEASE NOTE: If you are going to substitute in the same classroom for more than four (4) weeks, then
you must be “Highly Qualified.” What this means is you must 1) hold a license, and either have a minimum of
24 semester hours in the subject area you would be teaching, or have passed the state test in the subject area you
would be teaching. For more information, you may contact the Colorado Department of Education at 201 E.

                              Littleton Absence Reporting System
                                            (LARS)


All Littleton Public School employees and guest teachers are maintained in a central database at the
Education Services Center for absence reporting purposes. This computer-driven absence reporting
system (or a similar system) is used by many school districts across the country. LPS uses the Littleton
Absentee Reporting System (LARS) to maintain all absences reported by employees and to find guest
teachers when employees have authorized their use. Using the system is quite simple if the telephone
prompts are followed without anticipating what the next prompt will be.
As a guest teacher, you can access LARS for various reasons. Some of these reasons are:
  •   Registering to get a Personal Identification Number (PIN)
  •   Reviewing your PIN number if you forget it
  •   Changing your voice recording
  •   Listening to future jobs
  •   Changing callback numbers
  •   Accepting jobs
  •   Reviewing daily jobs schedules
  •   Canceling jobs
  •   Modifying available dates for working
The first thing you will be required to do after completing the guest teacher orientation is register with
LARS and get your Personal Identification Number (PIN). Only an employee or guest teacher may call
in to get their PIN; the system operator cannot do this for you. You will receive an email with your
ACCESS ID number included after orientation. The ACCESS ID number is necessary in order to
obtain your PIN. To register with LARS and receive your PIN number, you will need to follow the
directions set forth in the attached brochure.

Media Notification of School Closures
The school and district offices will be closed only in the case of emergency or severe weather. If the
schools and district offices are closed, if the schools are starting late, or if the schools are to be dis-
missed early, the Director of Transportation will notify the following radio and television stations:

  AM RADIO                          FM RADIO                                        TELEVISION

Notification does not guarantee that these stations will broadcast the information. It is suggested that guest
teachers listen to two or more stations.
A clearly defined procedure is used for making school closure decisions. Decisions on closures are made as
early in the day as possible and the announcement is relayed to radio and television stations immediately. If
schools are closed for the day, guest teachers will not be expected to arrive at school and will not be paid for
that day. Teachers are expected to arrive at regular school schedule times. The Delayed Schedule applies
only to students.

            DELAYED START/STORM
                 SCHEDULE
High Schools and Middle Schools: No delay in school start or bus pickup times.
Elementary Schools: One half-hour delay for school start times and bus pickup times. Elementary school start
times for ALL students are as follows:
    Early Elementary Schools ............... 9:06 a.m.

Afternoon Kindergarten: No delay in school start time.
Walkers and those who use private transportation should plan to be at school at the delayed start time—not before.
All levels—including morning kindergarten—will be dismissed at their normal times, unless notified otherwise.
Please note: During inclement weather, bus pickups may be delayed by congested traffic even though a delayed
             start has not been declared.

                                                             4

                                                    5
Arrival at School
Under normal conditions, i.e., when there is ample notice, guest teachers are expected to report to the principal’s
office ONE-HALF HOUR BEFORE the school day begins. The duties for the day will be explained by the
principal or someone designated by the principal. If LARS has called without enough of this lead time and you are
willing to work, accept the job with LARS and call the school. Speak with the secretary about arriving later than
scheduled. The school secretary will determine if they need a guest teacher for that time period on a job-by-job
basis.
Guest teachers will be provided with plans, instructions and materials for teaching, as well as the proper procedures
for nonteaching duties such as hall duty, fire and tornado raid drills, cafeteria regulations, and what to do when a
pupil becomes ill.
Note: Guest teachers are to stay at the assigned building unless excused by the principal or other
arrangements are made through the Main Office.

LARS tells you the time to arrive at school; approximately thirty minutes before classes start. On PLC
(Professional Learning Community) Days, Substitute Teachers are to arrive at the times listed in the second column
above.
The Day’s Program
When guest teachers report to secondary schools, they will be given a copy of the schedule of the teacher for whom
they are substituting. A time schedule for the beginning and end of each class will also be supplied. They will be
informed of any special responsibilities or modifications to the regular schedule for that day.
In an elementary school, the guest teacher will be informed as to the beginning and end of the school day and
informed of the time for other activities such as lunch, special classes, etc.
The guest teacher should teach the lessons planned for that day by the teacher for whom they are substituting. To
help the guest teacher achieve this goal, a lesson plan for the day is usually available.
Guest teachers should take advantage of any classroom organization established to handle necessary classroom
procedures whether or not a lesson plan has been provided. Make use of class or group leaders, seating charts,
outlines, curriculum guides, and other aids. Involve as many students as you can in conducting and summarizing the
lesson and in indicating what has been accomplished.
In seeking to carry out the regular teacher’s plans, guest teachers should also aim to make the day educationally
productive for the pupils and professionally rewarding for themselves. Leave a summary of the day’s
accomplishments for the regular teacher.

                                                            6
Getting Acquainted
Upon arriving in the classroom, guest teachers should greet the class and introduce themselves. It is good
practice, when meeting a class for the first time, to write your name on the chalkboard to help the students
remember your name throughout the period or the school day.
An attempt should be made to identify as many students by name as possible, since this encourages the
cooperation of the students and lessens the feeling that they are not identified as individuals.
In learning names, guest teachers may find the following suggestions helpful:
    • Use the seating chart, if one is available, or the teacher’s class register.
In elementary schools, any or all of these ideas will help:
    • Have the students make small name cards, fold them, and stand them on the desk with the name
       facing the teacher.
    • Have the students make informal introductions of themselves, volunteering any information about
       themselves they care to give.
    • Use a few minutes for any educational game or activity that requires the use of names.
    • Take advantage of other opportunities throughout the day to learn and use pupils’ names.

Pupil-Teacher Relationships
Guest teachers will find it useful to follow the example of successful teachers in matters of student
behavior.
   • Be fair, firm, and consistent.
   • Use the positive approach.
   • Praise in public; correct in private.
   • Do not punish the group for the behavior of a few.
   • Set up reasonable standards and stick to them.
   • Call attention to a student’s good behavior rather than to his/her misbehavior.
   • Seek the assistance of an administrator if problems arise. Use the call button in the classroom, or
       if you deem it appropriate, send a student to the Main Office with a note from you.

Before Students Leave the Classroom
Listed below are suggestions for use of those minutes at the end of a class or period:
    • If classroom sets of books or materials were used, have them all returned before the students leave
       the room. It is much easier to find a missing calculator or protractor in a class of 30 than
       somewhere among all the students in the room during the day.
    • Challenge students to recall and list on the chalkboard or overhead what they have studied or
       learned that period or day. (This will give them an alternative response when their parents ask
       what they did in school, instead of the traditional answer, “Nothing...we had a sub.”)
    • Remind students of any homework and due dates. Write these on the board.
    • Have students straighten and pick up the area around their desks.

Before Leaving the Building
The guest teacher should be sure that the classroom is in an orderly condition, books have been accounted
for, and supplies have been properly stored before leaving. A summary of what was accomplished during
the day should be completed at this time, including any issues of importance. Let the classroom teacher
know what went well and note students who were particularly helpful. The guest teacher is also expected
to stop in the school office to:
    • Receive any instructions relative to another assignment.
    • Return keys and other materials.
    • Check out with the secretary.

        Two half-day assignments in the same day, whether in the same school or different schools will be paid at
        $112 a day. Maximum potential daily rate = $135
        Exception—high schools, covering for another teacher during your planning period whether in the same
        department or not, will be considered part of that day’s assignment.

Pay Periods
Guest teachers are paid on the twentieth (20th) day of each month for the preceding month (example: Feb. 1–28 will
appear on the Mar. 20th paycheck. Mar. 1–31 will appear on the Apr. 20th paycheck). The pay period extends from
the first of the month through the last day of the month. When calculating salary for days worked, do not go by the
hours listed on the bottom of your check. Multiply days worked times rate of pay for that day and compare to gross
payment on your check. If this figure matches your amount, you were paid correctly, if not, call the LARS Desk for
more information. Pay type 10 Ptime district and pay type 11 Ptime school are guest teacher pay types listed on
your paycheck stub. Paychecks will always be mailed unless you choose the automatic deposit option. With this
option your paycheck will be directly deposited into your checking or savings account. To avoid errors in your
account, call your bank to ensure the deposit took place before writing checks on what you think you should have
gotten paid.

Payroll Deductions
Effective July 1, 1991, all guest teachers, with the exception of persons who are receiving PERA retirement, are
required to enroll in PERA. (Public Employees Retirement Association). The PERA payroll deduction is eight
percent of gross pay.

Maximum Days of Work
If a PERA retiree works four hours or less per day, he or she may work up to 720 hours per calendar year without a
benefit reduction. A retiree who works more than four hours per day may work up to 110 days during the calendar
year. A reduction of the retirement benefit would occur if the retiree exceeded the “working after retirement” limits.

                                Important Policies and Regulations
Assignments: All work assigned for the day is to be graded unless instructions not to do so have
been left by the regular teacher.
Attendance Record: A daily attendance form is issued from the school office. The guest teacher
will be informed of the specific procedures used in a school. Attendance must be recorded
accurately. A duplicate copy should be left for the regular teacher.
Books and Materials: A guest teacher is responsible for the proper use and care of classroom
books and materials. Supplementary books and materials may also be obtained through the school
office, the department head, a designated teacher, or the school library. Each school has some
system for efficient service of supplementary materials and will so inform the guest teacher.
Cancelling Assignment on Day of Assignment: After two unexcused same day cancellations in
one school year, the guest teacher will be placed on the inactive list for a period of one month. After
one month you will be returned to the system. After another unexcused same day cancellation, you
will be removed from the active guest teacher list for one year. After one year you may reapply as a
guest teacher. Although we are aware that cancellations become necessary from time to time, they
can create hardships in our schools and late cancellations usually result in unfilled positions.
Collection of Money: The guest teacher is responsible for all money collected and will be required
to make up any shortage which may be lost or stolen. For money collected, the name of the pupil,
the amount, and the purpose should be noted. Do not leave money in a desk or cabinet! All
money should be turned in at the office at the close of the school day.
Confidential: As a member of the profession, the guest teacher is obligated NOT to make
comments about any pupil, teacher, or administrator that will reflect discredit upon that person or
upon the teaching profession. Observations made during the school day and conversation
concerning teachers and/or pupils should be of a confidential nature and discussed only with the
school principal. Pupil records of all kinds are confidential and must be treated as such.
Corporal Punishment: Corporal punishment is prohibited by Board of Education policy.
Damage to School Property: Damage to school property or to the teachers’ or students’ personal
property should be reported at once to the office.
Detention of Pupils: Approval of the principal should be obtained in advance for the detention of
pupils.
Dismissal of Pupils: Pupils should be dismissed promptly in an orderly manner and in accordance
with the procedure used in the school.
Emergency Procedures: Have the principal advise you of emergency drill procedures and be
prepared to take class roll when students are out of the building.
Leaving School: Permission for a pupil to leave school before the regular hour of dismissal is
granted only with the approval of the school office.
No Smoking Policy: In order to promote the general health, welfare, and well-being of staff and
students, the Board of Education is committed to establishing Littleton Public Schools as a tobacco-
free school district. Effective January 1, 1991, smoking, chewing, or other use of tobacco products
by staff, students, and members of the public shall be banned from all district buildings. All forms
of tobacco use shall be prohibited on all district property, effective August 1, 1991.




                                                        9
Personal Belongings: Personal belongings (coats, pens, notebooks, wallets, etc.) should not be left
in the classroom by students. Items whose ownership is unknown should be taken to the office.
Personal Injury: Personal injury to pupils or teachers should be reported to the office immediately.
Pupil’s Records: An accurate record of the pupil’s work is important as evidence when discussing
the pupil’s progress with those concerned. Even though a guest teacher will not often guest teach for
the same teacher for longer than a day or two, a general report indicating what material the class
covered and the performance of the class as a whole or of outstanding individuals should be left for
the regular teacher.
Personal Data Changes: In order to ensure that we can locate you for teaching assignments and
payroll purposes, change of name, address or telephone number needs to be communicated in
writing. Please call the Human Resource Office to request a change of address packet.
Resignation: If you become employed out of the district, please send the Guest Teacher Office a
written notification to remove your name from the active guest teacher list.
Site Removal: If the school administration at a site directs the Substitute Office that you are not to
be assigned to that site again, due to performance issues, you will be removed from the district’s
calling system for that site. A formal letter will be mailed to the substitute teacher, along with a
copy of the complaint. If three requests are received by the Substitute Office that you are not to
return to their buildings, your name may be removed from the district’s guest teacher list for one
year. Please see “Substitute Teacher Unsatisfactory Performance Appeal Process” on page 19.
Workman’s Compensation: Procedures regarding Workman’s Compensation which comply with
Colorado Statutes are detailed in the Littleton Public Schools workers compensation pamphlet
distributed at orientation and available in each school office.
1) All injuries must be reported within 48 hours to the building administrator or area supervisor.
   The injured party must stop by the Human Resource Department at Education Services Center,
   5776 South Crocker Street, Littleton, Colorado, to provide their written statement and have it
   dated and time stamped within 4 days of the injury.
2) If medical attention is needed, an AUTHORIZATION FOR TREATMENT form must be
   obtained from and signed by the building administrator/supervisor or secretary. Medical
   treatment MUST be obtained from the designated providers, Occupational Medicine Physicians
   of Colorado, Dr. John Hughes. The employee will be responsible for any costs should he/she use
   a facility other than the designated provider or seek treatment without a signed
   AUTHORIZATION FOR TREATMENT, except in the case of an emergency. If an injury
   involves the imminent loss of life or limb, the employee should be immediately taken to the
   nearest emergency medical center. The employee’s care will be transferred to a designated
   provider at the earliest possible time. Health insurance does not cover work-related injuries.
3) After treatment at a designated facility, the employee must provide his/her supervisor with a
   copy of the PHYSICIANS INITIAL REPORT and WORK STATUS REPORT.

                           SUBSTITUTE TEACHER
               UNSATISFACTORY PERFORMANCE APPEAL PROCESS

The school principal has the responsibility and authority to evaluate all building staff, including substitute
teachers. If the performance of a substitute teacher is determined to be unsatisfactory, the principal or
assistant principal may request that the substitute teacher not return to his/her school.
When a report is received by the Director of Human Resources requesting a substitute not return to a
particular school, a formal letter will be mailed to the substitute teacher, along with a copy of the
complaint.
The substitute may contact the principal or the assistant principal giving an explanation as to what
occurred related to the specific incident resulting in the request not to return to the building. The
administrator may request reinstatement of the substitute teacher. If so, the administrator will contact the
Director of Human Resources and the substitute will be informed in writing regarding the reinstatement.
If three requests not to return have been submitted to the Director of Human Resources, the substitute will
be sent a written notice indicating that the guest teacher may be suspended from substituting for the
Littleton Public Schools (LPS) district for a period of one (1) calendar year, pending a formal meeting
with the Director of Human Resources.
Review Process
•   The substitute may contact the Director of Human Resources, within ten (10) days of receipt of the
    written notice, in order to request a meeting.
•   The Director will arrange a time, place, and date of the meeting.
•   The Director will contact the administrator of any school that has filed a written complaint.
•   The meeting will be closed, except for those individuals directly involved in the incident(s).
•   The building administrator(s) has the option to be present or may give additional information in
    writing.
•   The substitute may bring additional documentation related to any of the three notifications.
•   Depending upon the outcome of the Review Process, the substitute will either be reinstated, or will
    be suspended from working in the LPS district for a period of one (1) year.
•   Within ten (10) days after the meeting, the Director will respond to the substitute in writing. The
    decision of the Director will be final. A copy will be placed in the substitute’s employment file.
A substitute may reapply to work in the LPS district following the one-year suspension by writing a letter
to the Director of Human Resources stating this request and enclosing three (3) current (no more than two
years old) letters of recommendation documenting success in teaching assignments in schools in other
school districts.

Suspension
A licensed employee may be suspended, with pay, by the Superintendent, or the assistant superintendent of
human resources provided such suspension does not violate applicable law. The Superintendent or assistant
superintendent of human resources shall be authorized for good cause to suspend with pay a licensed staff
member as a disciplinary measure and/or pending an investigation when a licensed staff member is accused of
serious misconduct. The Superintendent shall report all such suspensions to the Board at its next meeting and
shall make a recommendation if further disciplinary action is warranted. Such suspension shall remain in force
until the issue prompting the suspension has been resolved. If suspension with pay is intended to be for
disciplinary reasons, the employee may file a grievance pursuant to Policy GBM in the event the District does not
commence dismissal proceedings.
Breach of Contract
A teacher’s license may be suspended if the teacher breaches or refuses to perform services for the School
District pursuant to contract.
Dismissal
The Board of Education shall follow procedures established by law for the dismissal of licensed teachers. The
grounds for dismissal of a teacher not on probationary status shall be those provided for in the applicable statute.
Full-time probationary teachers, currently employed by the Board, shall be reemployed for the succeeding
academic year at the appropriate salary unless the Board does not renew the contract of such teacher pursuant to
law.
If an employee is dismissed as a result of an allegation of unlawful behavior involving a child, including unlawful
sexual behavior, which is supported by a preponderance of evidence, the Board of Education shall notify the
Colorado Department of Education and provide any information requested by the department concerning the
circumstances of the dismissal. The District also shall notify the employee that information concerning the
resignation is being forwarded to the Colorado Department of Education unless such notice would conflict with the
confidentiality requirements of the Child Protection Act.

Policy

Purpose
To define the proper use of electronic mail (e-mail) and Internet services. The District provides resources for e-mail
and Internet services for the purpose of advancing the educational mission of the District. These resources are
provided and maintained at the District’s—and, therefore, the public’s—expense and are to be used by members of
the school community with respect for the public trust through which they have been provided.
Definition
Electronic mail includes all electronic messages that are transmitted through the District’s e-mail system via a local,
regional, or global network. Internet services include access to all Web sites via a local, regional, or global network.
An “approved service provider” is a non-District employee providing services to the district under contract or similar
arrangement who has been approved to use district e-mail and Internet services by the supervising Assistant
Superintendent.
Policy
The District is committed to providing an environment that encourages the use of computers and electronic
information as essential tools to support education. It is the responsibility of each employee, approved service
provider, and those they supervise to ensure that this technology is used for proper purposes and in a manner that
does not compromise the confidentiality of proprietary or other sensitive information.
The Board of Education directs the Superintendent to develop regulations and procedures for use of electronic mail
and the Internet. Such regulations and procedures should address, among other matters, issues of privacy, access of
information, ethical use of information, illegal and/or unauthorized uses of
e-mail and the Internet.
Notice of Policy
The Superintendent will ensure that all District employees and approved service providers have notice of this policy
and that each District employee and approved service provider signs an acknowledgement form stating they have
received and read the policy. The form will be maintained in the employee’s personnel file or with the service
provider’s contract.

Exhibit


        Using E-mail and the Internet Wisely
Using E-mail Wisely
•   E-mail encourages informal communication because it is easy to use. However, unlike a telephone call,
    e-mail creates a permanent record that is archived and often transmitted to others. Remember that even
    when you delete an e-mail from your mailbox; it may still exist in the archives.
•   Be circumspect about what you send and to whom. Do not say anything in an e-mail that you would not
    want to see republished throughout the District, in Internet e-mail, or on the front page of a newspaper.
    Remember that e-mail invites sharing; a push of the button will resend your message worldwide, if any
    recipient (or hacker) decides to do so. What you say can be republished and stored by others.
•   Users can create liability for themselves and the District. For example, within or outside the District, if
    you “publish” (type or resend) words that defame another individual or disparage another individual or
    institution, if you upload or download or resend copyrighted or pornographic material, if you use e-mail
    to harass or discriminate against someone, or if you send private information or data about someone,
    you may violate applicable laws and District policy. Make sure none of your activities violate any law
    or policy.
•   Beware of the “Reply All” button. Often your message only needs to be returned to one individual—is
    the message really appropriate for (and should it really take the time of) everyone on the address list?
•   Exercise caution in sending attachments. They may arrive garbled if the recipient is using a different e-
    mail system. Also, e-mail attachments can introduce viruses into the District system, and you can
    introduce a virus into a recipient’s system by forwarding an infected attachment. This is especially
    likely if the attachment arrives from an unknown source via the Internet. Please do not open any
    attached executable files (e.g. files ending in “.EXE,” “.BAT,” “.COM,” etc.) as these files may be
    viruses or programs designed to delete data from the computer.

Using the Internet Wisely
•   Be circumspect about where you go and what you do. Do not visit any site or download or share any
    material that might cause anyone to question your professionalism, or the District’s.
•   Read the “license” or “legal” contract terms on every site. Do not purport to bind the District to any
    license or other contract. If you make an agreement on your own behalf, do not violate that agreement
    using the District equipment or Internet account.
•   Do not assume that just because something is on the Internet, you may copy it. As a general rule,
    assume that everything is copyrighted and do not copy it unless there is a notice on the site stating that
    you may do so. For example, if you see a clever cartoon assume that you may NOT copy it.
    Governmental documents are an exception (you may copy them), but you must confirm that it is the
    “government” and not a government-related entity such as the post office.



                                                        15
•   Be aware of the “Do you want a cookie?” messages (if you have configured your browser to get such
    messages). If you answer yes, whatever activity in which you are engaged may be logged by the site
    owner to help it or its advertisers develop a profile about you or the District. It is possible that your
    browser is set to accept cookies without asking you each time.
•   Users can create liability for themselves and the District. For example, if you “publish” (type or resend)
    words that defame or disparage another individual or institution, if you upload or download or resend
    copyrighted or pornographic material, if you use the Internet to harass or discriminate against someone,
    or if you provide private information or data about someone, you may violate applicable laws or
    District policy. Make sure none of your activities violate any law or policy.
•   Do not engage in any “spamming” or other activities that could clog or congest District or Internet
    networks.

Regulation                                    Revised                February 22, 2007




The procedures that follow provide details regarding the appropriate and inappropriate use of electronic mail (e-mail)
and Internet services. The regulations may be supplemented by more specific administrative procedures governing
day-to-day management and operation of e-mail and Internet services. The procedures do not attempt to articulate all
required or proscribed behavior by users. Successful operation of e-mail and Internet services requires that all users
conduct themselves in a responsible, decent, ethical, and polite manner. The users are ultimately responsible for their
actions in accessing and using e-mail and Internet services and, as users, are expected to review and understand the
procedures in this document.
Appropriate Use
The District expects everyone to exercise good judgment and use e-mail and Internet services in a professional
manner. Use of e-mail and the Internet is expected to be related to the District’s goals of educating students and/or
conducting District business. The District recognizes, however, that some personal use is inevitable; and incidental
and occasional personal use that is infrequent or brief in duration is permitted so long as it does not interfere with
District business and is not otherwise prohibited by District policy or procedures. Individuals who have questions
regarding whether or not a particular activity or use is acceptable must seek approval from their supervisor prior to
initiating the activity or use.
Prohibited Uses
•   All illegal or other improper uses of the electronic mail system, including, but not limited to, pornography,
    obscenity, harassment, solicitation, gambling, and violating copyright or intellectual property rights are prohibited.
•   Using District e-mail for political purposes in violation of federal, state, or local laws is prohibited. This
    prohibition includes using e-mail to assist or to advocate, directly or indirectly, for or against a ballot proposition
    and/or the election of any person to any office. The use of e-mail for the expression of personal political opinions
    to elected officials is prohibited. Only those staff authorized by the Superintendent may express the District’s
    position on pending legislation or other policy matters.
•   Using District e-mail for illegal, harassing, vandalizing, inappropriate, or indecent purposes (including accessing,
    storing, or viewing pornographic, indecent, or otherwise inappropriate material), or in support of such activities is
    prohibited. Illegal activities are any violations of federal, state, or local laws (for example, copyright infringement,
    publishing defamatory information, or committing fraud). Harassment includes slurs, comments, jokes,
    innuendoes, unwelcome compliments, cartoons, pranks, or verbal conduct relating to an individual that 1) have the
    purpose or effect of creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive environment, 2) have the purpose or effect of
    unreasonably interfering with an individual’s work or school performance, or 3) interfere with school operations.
    Vandalism is any attempt to harm or destroy the operating system, application software, or data. Inappropriate use
    includes any violation of the purpose and goal of the network.
•   District e-mail may not be used to interfere or disrupt other users, services, or equipment. For example, disruptions
    include distribution of unsolicited advertising (“spam”), propagation of computer viruses, distribution of large
    quantities of information that may overwhelm the system (chain letters, network games, or broadcasting
    messages), and any unauthorized access to, or destruction of, District computers or other resources accessible
    through the District’s network (“cracking” or “hacking”).




                                                              17
•   The District reserves the right to filter Non-District senders of electronic mail if:
    •     An unsolicited message is sent to more than 100 recipients AND
    •     The message does not further the purpose and mission of the district.
Privacy
All District electronic mail systems are owned by the District and are intended for school-related purposes and
performance of job duties. Incidental personal use is permitted as long as such use does not interfere with the
employee’s or approved service provider’s job duties and performance, with the system operations, and/or other
system users. Employees and approved service providers should have no expectation of privacy when using the
electronic mail systems. Because there is no guarantee of privacy or confidentiality, other avenues of communication
should be used for such matters.
While the District respects the privacy of its staff and while the District currently does not have a practice of
monitoring or reviewing electronic information, the District reserves the right to do so for any reason. The District
may monitor and review the information in order to analyze the use of systems or compliance with policies, conduct
audits, review performance or conduct, obtain information, or for other reasons.
The District reserves the right to disclose any electronic message to law enforcement officials and, under some
circumstances, may be required to disclose information to law enforcement officials, the public, or other third parties,
for example, in response to a document production request made in a lawsuit involving the District or by a third party
against the user or pursuant to a public records disclosure request.
The District retains control, custody, and supervision of all e-mails and Internet services. The District reserves the
right to monitor all e-mails and Internet activity by employees and approved service providers and other system users
under the supervision of an employee or approved service provider. Users have no expectation of privacy in their use
of school computers for e-mail messages, Internet services, and stored files. Use of the District e-mail system and the
Internet is a privilege not a right.
The Internet and use of e-mail are not inherently secure or private. For example, the content of an e-mail message,
including attachments, is most analogous to a letter or official memo rather than a telephone call, since a record of the
contents of the e-mail may be preserved by the sender, recipient, and parties to whom the e-mail may be forwarded.
Deleting a message from the user’s computer system does not necessarily delete it from the District computer/server
system.
In some cases, e-mails have also been treated as public records in response to a public records disclosure request.
Likewise, files, such as Internet “cookies” (explained more fully below) may be created and stored on a computer
without the user’s knowledge. Users are urged to be caretakers of their own privacy and to not store sensitive or
personal information on District computers. The District may need to access, monitor, or review electronic data stored
on District computers, including e-mail and Internet usage records.
Transmitting Student and Employee Information
Except for directory information (e.g., student name, birth date, dates of attendance, institution attended), student
records contained in the District’s student information system electronically shall not be transmitted to institutions or
individuals outside the District, other than parents/legal guardians, either contained within the body of an e-mail
message or as an attachment to an e-mail message. However, required student information, including transcripts, can
be transmitted electronically with encryption to other entities in accordance with applicable Board of Education
policy, state and federal laws (e.g., the Colorado Department of Education and the military).
The confidentiality of any information stored in or created, received, or sent, over the e-mail system or through
Internet access cannot be guaranteed. As such, care should be taken when e-mails are sent that contain personal
information about District employees and other users under the supervision of an employee. E-mails that contain
information on students must heed the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). E-mails that contain
information regarding an employee or student’s protected health information must comply with the Health Insurance
and Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and follow the applicable procedures set forth in the District’s
HIPAA Privacy Use and Disclosure Procedures.




                                                               18
Archiving E-mails
Electronic mail sent or received by the Board, the District, the District’s employees, or approved service providers
may be considered a public record subject to public disclosure or inspection under the Colorado Open Records Act. E-
mail messages sent or received which contain District’s policies, decisions, procedures, operations, or other activities
may be considered public records and subject to public disclosure or inspection. It is suggested that the e-mail be
archived to a personal folder or printed off for future reference. E-mails may be archived periodically.
The District retains the right to review, store, and disclose all information sent over the District electronic mail
systems for any reason, including, but not limited to, determining whether the information is a public record, whether
it contains information discoverable in litigation, and to access District information in the employee’s or service
provider’s absence.
Employee and Approved Service Provider Acknowledgement Required
Each individual authorized to access the District’s e-mail and Internet services is required to sign an acknowledgement
form (GBEE-E) stating that they have read Policy GBEE and Policy EGAEA and their respective regulations (GBEE-
R and EGAEA-R). The acknowledgement form will be retained in the employee’s personnel file or approved service
provider’s contract file and will remain in effect for the duration of employment/service with the Littleton Public
Schools.
Any violation of Policies GBEE (Staff Use of District Technology), EGAEA (Electronic Mail and Internet Services),
and their respective regulations (GBEE-R and EGAEA-R) is unethical and may constitute a criminal or civil violation.
Violations may constitute cause for revocation of access privileges, suspension of access to e-mail and/or the Internet,
other disciplinary action, up to and including dismissal from employment and/or appropriate legal action, may be
taken. Specific measures will be determined on a case-by-case basis.

Policy                                         Revised


The District provides computers, networks, and Internet access to support the educational mission of the
schools and to enhance the curriculum and learning opportunities for students, employees, and other users
under the supervision of an employee.
The Internet is a vast collection of educational resources for staff and students and provides access to local,
national, and international sources of information and collaboration vital to intellectual inquiry. The
Internet is a valuable resource for promoting resource sharing, research innovation, communication, and
opportunity for collaborative work.
The Board of Education supports computer, network, and Internet use by staff to improve teaching and learning
through interpersonal communication, electronic communications with parents and students, access to information,
research, training, and collaboration and dissemination of successful educational practices, methods, and materials.
It is impossible to control all materials on the Internet, and an industrious user may discover controversial
information. The Board of Education firmly believes that the valuable information and interaction available on the
Internet far outweigh the possibility that users may inadvertently access material that is not consistent with the
educational goals of the District.
The Board of Education directs the Superintendent to develop regulations and procedures for employee use of
computers, networks, and the Internet. Such regulations and procedures should address, among other matters, issues
of privacy, ethical use of information, illegal and/or unauthorized uses of computers, networks, and equipment, and
other conditions of usage.
Use of these educational resources demands personal responsibility and an understanding of the acceptable use
procedures for computers, networks, and Internet access. Use of District technology is a privilege, not a right. General
rules for behavior and communications apply when using computers, networks, and the Internet. Failure to follow the
regulations or procedures will result in the loss of the privilege to use these tools and may result in disciplinary action
up to and including dismissal from employment.
Notice of Policy
The Superintendent will ensure that all District employees have notice of this policy and that each District employee
is given an acknowledgement form to sign stating they have received and read the policy. The form will be
maintained in the employee’s personnel file.

Regulation                                                            April 8, 2004




The intent of these regulations is to provide administrators, teachers, staff, and other users under the supervision of an
employee with procedures for utilizing the District’s computers, networks, and Internet services. The regulations may
be supplemented by more specific administrative procedures governing day-to-day management and operation of the
computers, network, and the Internet.
These regulations provide examples of prohibited uses for illustrative purposes, but do not attempt to state all required
or prohibited activities by users. Individuals who have questions regarding whether a particular activity or use is
acceptable should seek approval from their supervisor.
Failure to comply with Board Policy GBEE (Staff Use of District Technology), these regulations, and/or other
established administrative procedures governing computer, network, and Internet use is unethical and may constitute
a criminal or civil violation. Violations of GBEE or GBEE-R may result in a revocation of access privileges,
disciplinary action, and/or appropriate legal action. Illegal uses of the District’s computers will also result in referral
to law enforcement authorities.
    Access to Computers, Networks, and Internet Services
        The level of access that administrators, teachers, staff, and other users under the supervision of an employee
        have to District computers, networks, and Internet services is based upon an individual’s specific job
        requirements and needs.
    Acceptable Use
        Administrator, teacher, staff, and other users under the supervision of an employee access to the District’s
        computers, networks, and Internet services is provided for administrative, educational, communication, and
        research purposes consistent with the District’s educational mission, curriculum, and instructional goals.
        General rules and expectations for professional behavior and communication apply to use of the District’s
        computers, networks, and Internet services.
        Administrators, teachers, staff, and other users under the supervision of an employee are to utilize the
        District’s computers, networks, and Internet services for school-related purposes and performance of job
        duties. The confidentiality of any information stored in or created, received or sent over the e-mail system, or
        through Internet access cannot be guaranteed. The Internet should not be used for sending highly confidential
        information without encryption. Anything sent through the Internet passes through a number of different
        computer systems, all with different levels of security. The confidentiality of messages may be compromised
        at any point along the way. As such, care should be taken when e-mails are sent that contain personal
        information about District employees, students, and/or parents. E-mails that contain information on students
        must heed the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and e-mails that contain information on
        employees must heed the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
        Incidental personal use of District computers, networks, and Internet services is permitted as long as such use
        does not interfere with the employee’s job duties and performance, with the system operations, or other
        system users. “Incidental personal use” is defined as, and limited to, use by an individual for occasional
        personal communications. Unless the prior approval of the employee’s supervisor has been obtained, users
        may not use District technology systems for nonschool related purposes-, personal profit, or private financial
        gain, including, but not limited to, commercial, advertising, stock transactions, or solicitation purposes.
        Individuals are reminded that such personal use must comply with this policy and all other applicable
        policies, regulations, and administrative procedures.




                                                               21
Prohibited Use
   Administrators, teachers, staff, and other users under the supervision of an employee are responsible for their
   actions and activities involving District computers, networks, and Internet services and for their computer
   files, passwords, and accounts. Unacceptable uses that are expressly prohibited include, but are not limited to,
   the following:
   Users shall not:

      1. Access, transmit, or retransmit any material in violation of any U.S. or state law, including, but not
         limited to, copyrighted material and material protected by trade secret.
      2. Access, transmit, or retransmit material regarding students, parents/guardians, or District staff that is
         protected by confidentiality laws. If material is not legally protected, but is of a confidential or sensitive
         nature, great care shall be taken to ensure that only those with a “need to know” are allowed access to the
         material. Staff members shall handle all employee and student records in accordance with policies GBL
         (Personnel Records), JRA/JRC (Student Records/Release of Information on Students), EGAEA
         (Electronic Mail and Internet Services), and applicable statutes, including the Family Educational Rights
         and Privacy Act (FERPA) and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
      3. Access, transmit, or retransmit material which is threatening, promotes violence, or advocates
         destruction of property, including, but not limited to, information concerning the manufacture of
         destructive devices such as explosives, fireworks, smoke bombs, incendiary devices, or the like.
      4. Access, transmit, or retransmit any information containing pornographic, obscene, or other
         sexually oriented material. (Pornographic means pictures or writings that are intended to stimulate
         erotic feelings by the description or portrayal of sexual activity or the nude human form.)
      5. Access, transmit, or retransmit material which advocates or promotes violence or hatred against
         particular individuals or groups of individuals or advocates or promotes the superiority of one
         racial, ethnic, or religious group over another.
      6. Use District computing resources for any commercial activities, such as advertising or selling
         goods or services, unless it is for legitimate District business.
      7. Except for educational or District business purposes, create, transmit, or download any materials
         that support or oppose the nomination for election of a candidate for public office or the passage
         of a levy or bond issue.
      8. Solicit political contributions using District computing resources from any person or entity.
      9. Use inappropriate or profane language or access, transmit, or retransmit material likely to be offensive
         to others in the school community, including sexually harassing material.
     10. Use or possess copies of malicious programs or hacking/cracking type programs on any computer
         systems connected to the District network that could be used to assist in the commission of
         computer vandalism without written consent of the director of the Technology Department or
         their designated alternate representative(s).
     11. Use or possess unauthorized or bootleg software. (Bootleg software means any software that has
         been downloaded or is otherwise in the user’s possession without the appropriate registration of
         the software, including the payment of any fees owing to the owner of the software.)
     12. Impersonate another user or transmit or retransmit material anonymously.
     13. Transmit or retransmit communication that represents personal views as those of the District or
         that could be misinterpreted as such.
     14. Attempt to establish Internet or other external connections that could allow unauthorized persons
         to gain access to the Littleton Public Schools’ systems, information, and/or Internet services.
     15. Use another individual’s network account without expressed permission from that individual or
         modify files, passwords, or data belonging to other users in the District.
     16. Destroy, modify, or abuse District-owned technology or disrupt the operation of any network
         within the District or any network connected to the Internet, including the use, attempted use, or
         possession of computer viruses.




                                                        22
      17. Attempt to circumvent the Internet filter to gain access to unauthorized or filtered sites without
          override approval.
      18. Fail to stop and/or inform the building principal or supervisor of any violation of the provisions
          contained herein.
No Expectation of Privacy
    The District retains control, custody, and supervision of all computers, networks, and Internet services owned
    or leased by the District. The District reserves the right to monitor all computer and Internet activity by
    employees and other system users. The District reserves the right to access and disclose, as necessary, all
    messages sent over its e-mail system, without regard to content. As such, you should not use e-mail to
    transmit messages you would not want read by a third party. Users have no expectation of privacy in their use
    of school computers, including e-mail messages and stored files. Use of District technology is a privilege, not
    a right.
Responsibilities to Students
   Administrators, teachers, staff, and other users under the supervision of an employee who utilize school
   computers for instructional purposes with students have a duty of care to supervise such use. Teachers and staff
   members are expected to be familiar with the District’s policies and regulations concerning student computer
   and Internet use and to enforce them (Policy JS, Student Use of the Internet). When, in the course of their
   duties, employees become aware of student violations, they shall stop the activity and/or inform the building
   principal or supervisor.
Compensation for Losses, Costs, and/or Damages
  Administrators, teachers, staff members, and other system users under the supervision of an employee shall be
  responsible for any losses, costs, or damages incurred by the District related to violations of Policy GBEE and/or
  these regulations, or arising out of, or relating to, any personal use.
District Assumes No Responsibility for Unauthorized Charges, Costs, or Illegal Use
   The District assumes no responsibility for any unauthorized charges made by users, including, but not limited
   to, credit card charges, subscriptions, or for any illegal use of its computers such as copyright violations.
No District Liability Relating to Any Incidental Personal Use
    The District assumes no liability for any loss arising out of, or relating to, any personal use. The employee
    assumes all responsibility for any loss.
Employee Acknowledgement Required
  Each individual authorized to access the District’s e-mail and Internet services is required to sign an
  acknowledgement form (GBEE-E) stating that they have read Policy GBEE and Policy EGAEA and their
  respective regulations (GBEE-R and EGAEA-R). The acknowledgement form will be retained in the
  employee’s personnel file and will remain in effect for the duration of employment/service with the Littleton
  Public Schools.
    Any violation of Policies GBEE (Staff Use of District Technology), EGAEA (Electronic Mail and Internet
    Services), and their respective regulations (GBEE-R and EGAEA-R) is unethical and may constitute a
    criminal or civil violation. Violations may constitute cause for revocation of access privileges, suspension of
    access to e-mail and/or the Internet, other disciplinary action, up to and including dismissal from employment
    and/or appropriate legal action, may be taken. Specific measures will be determined on a case-by-case basis.

Littleton Public Schools is concerned about the health, safety, well-being, and satisfactory job performance of its
employees. The use, abuse, and/or dependency on alcohol and/or illegal drugs constitute behavior that reflects on
the integrity of the District. This can seriously affect the health of employees, threaten their own safety and that
of coworkers and students, and impair job performance.
Recognizing that the employees of Littleton Public Schools are one of its valuable resources and that drug and
alcohol abuse problems are treatable, Littleton Public Schools encourages employees to seek assistance from the
District’s Employee Assistance Program (EAP) or other similar program to assist the employee in returning to a
level of satisfactory job performance.
The manufacture, use, possession, sale, transfer or distribution of alcoholic beverages or illegal drugs by any
employee of Littleton Public Schools while on the job, on School District property, or using School District
vehicles, shall result in disciplinary action, which may include employee suspension, dismissal, and referral to the
appropriate law enforcement agencies. An employee may be allowed to participate in an approved drug or
alcohol abuse assistance or rehabilitation program as an alternative to disciplinary action.
A conviction or the acceptance of a guilty plea or a plea of “no contest” with respect to a felony charge of
unlawful manufacture, use, possession, sale, transfer, or distribution of alcoholic beverages or illegal drugs by
any employee of Littleton Public Schools while off duty shall result in disciplinary action, which may include
employee dismissal. Pursuant to the law, any employee who is convicted or pleads “no contest” under any
criminal drug statute for a violation occurring in the workplace shall notify the Superintendent’s office no later
than five days after the conviction. The District has an obligation under federal law to notify the appropriate
federal agencies within ten days after receiving notice of such conviction if there is a relationship between the
federal funds received by the District and the work site of the convicted employee.
Observance of this policy is a condition of employment.
Each administrator shall verify that each employee in his/her unit has been notified of this policy. Each new
employee shall be notified of this policy when hired by the District and shall be required to verify that such
notification has been given at the time of employment. All employees who work specifically under a contract or
grant which is federally funded shall acknowledge, in writing, receipt of a copy of this policy.
The Superintendent or designee shall establish an awareness program to inform employees about (1) the dangers
of drug and alcohol abuse, (2) the Board’s policy of maintaining a drug-free workplace, (3) available drug and
alcohol counseling, rehabilitation, and employee assistance programs, and (4) penalties that may be imposed
upon employees for drug and alcohol abuse violations occurring in the workplace.




                                                             24
The Board shall conduct a biennial review of its drug and alcohol abuse prevention program to determine its
effectiveness, to implement required changes, and to ensure the disciplinary sanctions are consistently enforced.
The Superintendent is directed to establish procedures to implement this policy.

Littleton Public Schools provides a workplace free of unlawful and improper harassment. Harassment is
misconduct and may subject an individual to discipline.
Harassment is defined as unwelcomed or unsolicited verbal, physical, or sexual conduct which creates an
intimidating, hostile, or offensive workplace. Examples of what may be harassment, depending on the
circumstances, are:
    Verbal harassment —derogatory or vulgar comments regarding a person’s race, sex, religion, ethnic heritage,
    physical appearance, or distribution of written or graphic material having such effects.
    Physical harassment —hitting, pushing, or other aggressive physical conduct, or threats to take such action.
    Sexual harassment —unwelcomed or unsolicited sexual advances, demands for sexual favors, or other verbal
    or physical conduct of a sexual nature, including but not limited to implied or overt promises of preferential
    treatment or threats concerning an individual’s employment status.
Employees who feel they have been harassed may file a staff complaint (employee-to-employee alleged
harassment) or grievance under Board Policy GBM—Staff Complaints and Grievances. Supervisors who become
aware of any such harassment, whether employee-to-employee, supervisor-to-employee, or employee-to-
supervisor, must promptly advise the staff member of his/her right to file a staff complaint (employee-to-
employee) or grievance. In the event that a charge is made against a supervisor who could have reviewed the
charge pursuant to the grievance policy, the Superintendent shall designate another person to review the charge in
lieu of the supervisor.

Regulation


Employees feeling they have been subjected to harassment may use the staff complaint and/or grievance
procedure under Board Policy GBM—Staff Complaints and Grievances.
  A. The Superintendent shall appoint a complaint officer who shall:
         1. Receive complaints of harassment from employees;
         2. Confer separately with the complainant and the employee against whom the complaint is made, in
            an attempt to determine the circumstances leading to the complaint;
         3. Confer jointly and informally with both parties, if the complaint officer considers it desirable and
            both parties consent;
         4. Make a determination as to the merits of the complaint and, where appropriate, propose an informal
            resolution; and
         5. Keep the matter confidential, except to the extent that disclosure is required by these procedures.
  B. An informal resolution agreeable to both parties closes the matter, except that:
         1. The complaint officer shall submit a record of the complaint, including names of the parties
