Superintendent Dispels Rumors About Whether District Monitors Staff Internet Use

North Canton Schools Superintendent Michael Hartenstein responded to rumors that a position was created to monitor the Internet use of faculty and staff

No one is playing "big brother" for North Canton schools when it comes to using the Internet.

Superintendent Michael Hartenstein told North Canton Patch via email that the rumors of the district hiring a person to monitor the staff and faculty Internet use is untrue.

"No, no one has been hired," Hartenstein said. "Further, we have not changed any procedures other than trying to increase security access into our systems."

Patch has heard recently from North Canton teachers concerned about this possibility.

Hartenstein said that the district is not actively looking at individuals' Internet usage.

In November, a former employee reportedly tweeted a threat toward Hartenstein after she was fired for inappropriate use of Twitter on school time.

Hartenstein declined to press charges in the incident.
