STELLAR Schools Agreement
SLIP Connections

A STELLAR School is a three-way partnership among the school and school board, STEM~Net and Cable Atlantic. The following agreement outlines the responsibilities of all three partners in the formation of a STELLAR School:

School Name _____________________________________________________________

School Address  _________________________________________________________


Phone	_______________________________  Fax  ___________________________

Lead Teacher  _________________________  E-mail _________________________

School Principal  _____________________  E-mail _________________________

School Board    _________________________________________________________

School Board
Representative  _______________________  E-mail _________________________

In becoming a STELLAR School, the school agrees to the following:

  1. To provide a LAN within the school and to provide system supervision for this LAN. The school also agrees that root/administrator privileges WILL NOT be given to students under any circumstances.
  2. To assume all responsibility for student use of the system and for any mis-use of the system by students.
  3. To ensure that this connection is not used to provide secondary level (back-door) dial-up into the Cable Atlantic network. The school also agrees that accounts on this system will not be provided to anyone outside the school.
  4. To ensure the effective use of this connection to the school. As part of this, the school will carry out at least three projects in each of the four years, which make effective use of the services available to it. These projects must be approved by the District STELLAR Schools Council. The projects for Year 1 are to be attached to this agreement.
  5. To enter into the STELLAR Schools High-Speed Agreement, on moving to a high-speed connection, if the opportunity becomes available in the four year period.
  6. That failure to continue to meet these requirements at any time during the four years may result in discontinuation of the project for this school, on the recommendation of the District STELLAR Schools Council.
  7. To notify Cable Atlantic of any intended commercial use of the connection and to negotiate a monthly fee for this use.
  8. The School Web site must promote and link to the Stellar School web site.
  9. That the school agrees to place and maintain any school web pages available for Internet access on the central server space provided by STEM~Net for this purpose, until high-speed access becomes available to the school. This will help reduce the traffic on the SLIP connection to the school.

STEM~Net agrees to the following:

  1. To provide senior system-administration guidance for the STELLAR School.
  2. To support STELLAR Schools system manager training for the school LAN manager.
  3. To provide project coordination for the projects required to be undertaken by the STELLAR School.
  4. To provide online resources to assist the school in developing and carrying out these projects.

Cable Atlantic agrees to the following:

  1. To provide a dedicated SLIP dial-in line for use by the school and to move the school connection to a high-speed connection, if it becomes available during the four year period, for the remainder of the four years, at no additional connectivity charge.
  2. To allow schools and boards to use the STELLAR Schools logo for non-commercial school promotions and publications.

NOTE: Three Project Proposals must be attached.
