JIS believes participation in the digital realm is a distinguishing feature of contemporary learning. The use of digital tools to share content ranging from community events to school publications to student work is intended to foster creative expression and collaboration with a wider global learning community. Effective digital sharing promotes authentic learning and celebrates the best of JIS.
As members of the JIS Community, students, parents, faculty, staff and alumni may be digitally recorded in a way that enables them to be visually or personally identifiable. In addition, student and faculty work may be documented and shared in digital form. The following expectations apply with respect to the use of such content

Of Special Note to JIS Faculty and Staff
JIS faculty and staff are expected to:
Prioritize the use of their professional identity via JIS-issued accounts when sharing JIS-related content. The use of personal accounts (including social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, YouTube) to conduct school-related business is not advised, but remains subject to the guidelines in this policy.
Do not “friend” current students, or create a similar inappropriately familiar relationship online using a personal account. Use discretion when “friending” other adults, including parents of students.
JIS may collect and record information from users in a variety of forms: inquiries, admissions applications, contracts, event registrations, user profiles on JIS systems, surveys, assessment data, and the like. Any information we collect is intended to support the JIS mission/vision and to build positive relations with members of our JIS community.
JIS uses secure channels (SSL technology) for transmission of sensitive data via JIS systems online.
