Internet access allows students to develop their problem-solving skills and to participate in real-life experiences.
By providing increased access to technological tools and information resources, students and staff are empowered with the technical knowledge and skills needed to live and work in a technology-supported information economy. While we share with our community the responsibility for the education of all students so they will be prepared to live and work in a rapidly changing world, we also share with our community the concern for the welfare of our students. We all need to be aware of what it takes to keep our students safe on the internet.
The resources below will help you and your child learn more about internet safety.

- Campbell County Public Schools
We protect our records in accordance with our obligations as defined by applicable Virginia statutes, including, but not limited to, Government Data Collection and Dissemination Practices Act, the Virginia Freedom of Information Act, and by any applicable federal laws.

Our website may contain links to other public or private entities’ websites, whose privacy practices we do not control.
Information we collect
When you access our website, the routing or client information, and the essential and nonessential technical information listed below, is automatically collected. No other information is collected through our website except when you deliberately decide to send it to us (for example, by clicking on a link to send us an e-mail). The information you might choose to send us is listed below as “optional information.”
- Routing, or client, information: the Internet domain and Internet address of the computer you are using;
- Essential technical information: identification of the page or service you are requesting, type of browser and operating system you are using, and the date and time of access;
- Nonessential technical information: the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to our website, and the “cookie information” described below;
- Optional information: when you send us an e-mail, your name, e-mail address, and the content of your e-mail, and/or when you fill out online forms, all the data you choose to fill in or confirm; and,
How the collected information is used
Routing information is used to route the requested web page to your computer for viewing. We send the requested web page and the routing information to our Internet Service Provider (ISP) or other entities involved in transmitting the requested page to you. We do not control the privacy practices of those entities. Essential and nonessential technical information helps us respond to your request in an appropriate format, or in a personalized manner, and helps us plan website improvement.
Optional information enables us to provide services or information tailored more specifically to your needs or to forward your message or inquiry to another entity that is better able to do so, and also allows us to plan website improvements.
However, on rare occasions when a “hacker” attempts to breach computer security, logs of routing information are retained to permit a security investigation and in such cases may be forwarded together with any other relevant information in our possession to the appropriate law enforcement agency.
Optional information is retained in accordance with the Records Retention Schedules promulgated by the Library of Virginia.
Under the Freedom of Information Act, any records in our possession at the time of a request for information may be subject to being inspected by or disclosed to members of the public for any purpose.
Choice to provide information
There is no legal requirement for you to provide any information at our website. However, our website will not work without routing information and the essential technical information. Failure of your browser to provide nonessential technical information will not prevent your use of our website, but may prevent certain features from working. Failure to provide optional information may mean that the particular feature or service associated with that part of the web page would not be available to you.
