1. Acceptable Use Policy

An Acceptable Use Policy is a set of rules written and enforced by the owner and/or director of a network, website, or other large computer system that guide the method in which the network, website, etc. may be used. An AUP is written in order to reduce the potential for system malfunction, misuse, and best practices. 

Users of the St. Joseph Parish network are bound by two official documents: the Acceptable Use Computing Policy of the Diocese of Harrisburg and the St. Joseph Parish Information Technology Acceptable Use Policy. Both of these documents can be found here. Employees and those who register for the Youth Protection Program must sign the Diocesan Acceptable Use Computing Policy. Parish network users must sign both the Diocesan Acceptable Use Computing Policy as well as the St. Joseph Parish Information Technology Acceptable Use Policy. Those who follow the St. Joseph Parish Information Technology Acceptable Use Policy are also in compliance with the Diocesan Acceptable Use Computing Policy.

Questions concerning the St. Joseph Parish Information Technology Acceptable Use Policy should be directed to the Department of Information Technology of St. Joseph Parish.

3. Citrix

Citrix is the Diocesan means of communication to parish, school, and diocesan employees. Within the Citrix platform, users have access to their HBGDIOCESE.ORG email, Microsoft Office application suites, the Diocesan phone directory, and access to the Diocesan Intranet.

4. COW

A COW, or Computer On Wheels, is a mobile cart that consists of a PC workstation, a DVD/VHS player, and audio speakers attached to a LCD projector.

5. DigiStatus

The DigiStatus is a way for IT to make system-wide announcements, warnings, and updates. Because there is the potential that email and other means of communication could be down, the DigiStatus is a relatively reliable way to disseminate information while not relying on other technologies or filling recipients’ mailboxes. The IT DigiStatus can be found on the front of the MySJY Portal.
