What you should know about your STUDENT.PPS.NET account.

  • As students become digital users and consumers and are introduced to digital tools and resources by teachers, it is critical that they understand what it means to be a positive and productive digital citizen. This includes understanding your rights and responsibilities when online. Any time you log into a digital resource, you are entering into an agreement. This may be an agreement with your internet service provider, with Google or Microsoft, with a social media company, or simply with the owner of the webpage, you are visiting. Too often, students and adults never give those agreements much thought, making them unaware of what data is being tracked, how it is being used, who owns it, and for what purpose. This data that we leave when we visit web pages, create online documents, or post to social media platforms makes up our digital footprint.

    Just as Google has access to all the content on their network and how every social media company has a copy of every post ever made on their platform (Tik Tok, Snapchat, Reddit, Instagram, etc.), PPS maintains appropriate logs of activity on pps.net and student.pps.net accounts. Below you will find information about your student.pps.net account along with the Acceptable Use Policy (the agreement) and information on tools PPS uses to log data. We have also included information on three foundational US policies and laws that ensure PPS is responsibly building safe networks and internet experiences for all our students. If you have any questions please reach out to your school principal or email support@pps.net attention Learning Technologies.
