You wouldn’t go out for the day and leave your front door wide open, right? The same principle applies to the devices you use. You should always lock your screen when you leave your workstation or classroom. We encourage all staff members to lock their desktop or laptop computer EVERY time they leave their workstation or classroom. To lock your district desktop or laptop simply press Windows Key + L.
Added Level of District Protection – Beginning Friday, Nov. 18
To ensure that a device is not left unattended for a long period of time, the district will be applying a forced screensaver. This additional level of protection is part of our continued focus on staff and student data security within the Comprehensive School Improvement Plan. The forced screensaver will be applied after 50 minutes of inactivity by the user on the desktop or laptop computer.
Absolutely, you should NOT leave your computer logged on AND unattended. You are responsible for anything that occurs under your log in. It is very simply to lock using Windows Key + L.
