CPS Rules

Wiki Manners and Rules

Working on this site is a privilege.

To be allowed this privilege you must agree to abide by the following rules.

  1. Understand that this site is an extension of school. All school rules apply, even if you use this site when you are not at school.

  2. All participants will be respectful in their postings and edits. No trash-talk, inappropriate language, personal insults, profanity, spam, racist, sexist or discriminatory remarks, or threatening comments will be tolerated.

  3. Any speech that is considered inappropriate in school and in the classroom, is inappropriate on the wiki. This includes, but is not limited to, profanity; racist, sexist or discriminatory remarks, and personal attacks.

  4. All use of the wiki must be in accordance with the STUDENT CODE OF CONDUCT, including entries made from computers outside of school.

  5. Use the name that you were assigned by your teacher.

  6. No participant may share his/her log-in information.

  7. Never, ever, put your last name on this site.

  8. Never, ever, put your e-mail address, birth date, home address, phone number nor any other means of contact on this site.

  9. Never make any changes or add any sorts of content to the site that are inappropriate.

  10. Be sure to follow all rules and suggestions that are offered by your teachers regarding appropriate posting in your class.

  11. Do not make changes to this site that are outside the instructions and intent of this wiki. Even if done in the spirit of fun, the unauthorized changing or adding of text, links, images, etc, will be considered vandalism. This can be suspendable offense!

  12. Wikis are public. Whatever you post on a wiki can be read by anyone and everyone on the Internet. Even if you delete a post or comment, it has often already been archived elsewhere on the web. Do not post anything that you wouldn’t want your parents, your best friend, your worst enemy, or a future employer to read.

  13. All wiki content is subject to teacher approval and/or deletion.

  14. The teacher will be notified of any edits or changes made to the wiki and the teacher will know who made these edits and changes.

Any violation of the above terms and conditions shall make the violator subject to both immediate termination from the wiki. You will receive a zero as a grade for the work assigned. You may be disciplined through the CPS code of conduct, where applicable. At the teacher’s discretion, a warning may be given in the case of minor infractions.

Understand that the administrators of this site have means of reverting edits AND of tracing where specific edits came from. Don't risk being suspended or removed from the class for the sake of a practical joke.
