    Woody, what do you do about staff not logging off? Or them running SIMS and projecting the data onto the whiteboard? Or them leaving their computer unattended with SIMS logged in?

    Re: How do you seperate your networks. Subnet / Vlan

    What can you do??? Other than keep stressing to them the need to lock their workstations. If you can get the support of SMT and ask them to stress that this could be a diciplinary issue if data is compromized as a result of lax security by a member of staff, then you are better placed to deal with it.

    I check who's logged in regularly with AB Tutor control. If a staff account is still active and it's obvious they are not around, I lock the workstation, then 'politely' remind them. Education is the name of the game.

    With regard to them using their laptop for the IWB as well as sims, they can freeze the image on the projector if they need to leave something up on the board, but many staff like the pupils to see their register being marked. This gives the pupils a reminder that their attendance and punctuality is being monitored constantly.

    Or, in some rooms we have given staff who prefer it a seperate fixed PC for Sims, and they can use their laptop for the IWB.

    At the end of the day, especially if you have a laptop, there is no excuse for leaving sims logged in unattended. You can shut the lid to lock the laptop. Equally, it takes a second to do Ctrl-Alt-Del and Enter on a workstation. If it was their wallet or purse on the desk, I'm sure they would take a second to leave it secure even if a fight was going on outside.
