IJNDC School System Website/Web Pages


The School Department maintains an official website to provide general information about our school system, as well as information about educational programs, extracurricular activities, school events, and student and staff achievements. This website is intended to support the educational mission of the schools, to enhance the curriculum and learning opportunities for students and staff, and to provide valuable information to the larger community about our schools. The website does not create, nor is it intended to create, a public or limited public forum.

The website also provides the School Board a medium to publicize its official position on issues related to the schools such as school building projects, proposed school budgets, and public policies affecting the schools. The website is an outlet for the official message of SAD #4 and is not a forum for dissemination of other views. The content of the website shall remain in the exclusive control of SAD #4, its School Board and designated agents.

The Board recognizes that the schools must establish reasonable controls to protect the privacy of students and staff, to ensure that the website is in compliance with applicable laws, and to ensure that it meets the highest educational and quality standards. The Superintendent shall be responsible for overseeing the implementation of this policy and the accompanying guidelines, and for advising the Board of the need for any future amendments or revisions to the policy or guidelines. The Superintendent may develop additional administrative procedures and/or rules governing the day-to-day management and operations of the School Department’s website, consistent with the Board’s policy and guidelines. The Superintendent may delegate specific responsibilities as deemed appropriate.
