Acceptable Use Policy Guidelines

The school’s District Board of Education now can offer supervised Internet access to its students and staff. The Internet offers rich opportunities to gather information, share resources, and collaborate with others throughout the world. Along with this capability come responsibilities for each student. Each student MUST act responsibly and accept responsibility for their actions. Students MAY NOT at any time access inappropriate sites on the Internet.

A single violation of the Acceptable Use Policy will result in loss of computer access for the marking period and a failing grade in the computer for the said marking period. A second violation of the Acceptable Use Policy will result in loss of computer access for the entire school year and a failing mark in a computer class for the year.
