    When using Zoom:

    • protect student data privacy. 
    • ensure student activity in Zoom rooms is monitored to prevent cyberbullying, inappropriate language/content, etc.
    • prevent "Zoombombing.”  Zoombombing is when someone hacks into a Zoom room and then shows inappropriate content to the people there. 
    • Improve functionality in Zoom (and reduce freezing and “lag”) by only using webcams, for example, when needed
