Any student who creates a website or blog prior to attending Calvary Christian School must register the website/blog before final acceptance is granted. All websites/blogs will be monitored for content on a regular basis. Any student found with an unregistered website or blog, or website or blog material that is deemed inappropriate to the purpose and mission of Calvary Baptist Church and Calvary Christian School will be in direct disobedience to this ruling. This will result in disciplinary action as detailed below, and repeat offenses can lead to dismissal from Calvary Christian School.

2nd offense: 1-day out-of-school suspension
3+ offense: Case-by-case administrative ruling
â€œInappropriate materialâ€ posted on any publicly accessible location (website, blog, YouTube, etc.) includes, but is not limited to,
1) any words, phrases, communications, pictures or images deemed by the pastor or principal to be inappropriate,
2) any text naming or referring to Calvary Baptist Church or Christian School, its personnel or students,
3) any images of CCS students, faculty, or facilities without the
express consent of every person in the image, the parents of students shown, and the school administration.
