The annual DSA talent show is almost here! The dress rehearsal will be on May 27th during the school day. The talent show will take place on May 28th from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Tickets will be $3.00 at the box office.
In an effort to keep our campus safe and secure, the Sheriff has recommended that the DSA gates be closed at all times when school is in session. Parents who are accustomed to walking their students to class in the morning will be reminded by a staff member at the gate.. Students will be welcomed through the gates until 8:30, when all gates will be locked. Students and parents arriving after that point will need to check in through the main office.
We welcome our parents as volunteers and visitors; however, from now on everyone must come in to the campus through the main office. Thank you for helping to keep our campus safe for all our students!
A Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program is being implemented on all high school, and some middle school, campuses in Polk County. DSA is one of the middle schools joining this initiative. Please encourage your students to begin bringing their own devices to school, as your teachers begin implementing the program in their classrooms. A link to the BYOD information can be found on the IST web page and the Network Manager Information Site in The IST staff has upgraded the secured wireless network to enhance the BYOD program. We will provide support and professional development.
Q. Will my child have access to the same educational applications available on district equipment?
Answer: Your child will have access to any web based application the school currently uses (Databases, library search tools etc.).
Q. As a parent, am I required to add additional software (virus protection, filter, tracking device, etc.) to my child's device?
Answer: No. Virus protection is always advised, but not required. While on the school network, students will be monitored through the district's filter.
Q. If my child's device is stolen or damaged while at school, what should I do?
Answer: The district is not responsible for any damage or theft of student owned device. Theft or vandalism of any kind should be reported immediately to the School Resource Officer (SRO) on campus so he/she can take the appropriate steps.
Q. Does the Acceptable Use Policy ("AUP") apply to my own personal device?
Answer: Yes. The Acceptable Use Policy for Polk County Schools remains in effect even when you are using your own device. Violating the terms of the AUP would be a student code of conduct violation and would be dealt with as such.
Q. Where are the District Technology Policies located?
Answer: www.polk-fl.net → Staff → Technology → Tech Policies
All students will need to know their POLK-FL network username and password (Please note that elementary students do not have network credentials at this time. Only middle and high school students can use this option). This is referred to as your POLK-FL credentials. To obtain this information, please ask your teacher to provide this information.
