SCHOOL DISTRICT INTERNET ACCESS FOR STUDENTS

The School Board recognizes that technological resources can enhance student performance by offering
effective tools to assist in providing a quality instructional program, facilitating communications with
parents/guardians, teachers, and the community, supporting District and school operations, and
improving access to and exchange of information. The Board expects all students to learn to use the
available technological resources that will assist them in the performance of their education. As needed,
students shall receive lessons and instruction in the appropriate use of these resources.

Students shall be responsible for the appropriate use of technology and shall use the District’s
technological resources primarily for purposes related to their education. Students are hereby notified
that there is no expectation of privacy on district computers, computer files, email, internet usage logs,
and other electronic data.

The Superintendent or designee shall ensure that all District computers with Internet access have a
technology protection measure that prevents access to visual depictions that are obscene or pornographic
and that the operation of such measures is enforced. The Superintendent or designee may disable the
technology protection measure during use by an adult to enable access for bona fide research,
educational or other lawful purpose.

The Superintendent shall establish administrative regulations and an Acceptable Use Agreement that
outlines student obligations and responsibilities related to the use of District technology. He/she also
may establish guidelines and limits on the use of technological resources. Inappropriate use may result
in a cancellation of the student’s user privileges, disciplinary action, and/or legal action in accordance
with law, Board policy, and administrative regulations.

The Superintendent or designee shall provide copies of related policies, regulations, and guidelines to all
students. Students shall be required to acknowledge in writing that they have read and understood the
District’s Acceptable Use Agreement annually.
