We are pleased to offer students access to the school-wide computer network for the Internet. Access to the Internet enables students to explore thousands of libraries, databases, and bulletin boards. We believe that the Internet provides invaluable resources to our students.
Families should be warned that some material accessible via the Internet might contain items that are illegal, defamatory, inaccurate or potentially offensive to some people. While our intent is to make Internet access available to further educational goals and objectives, students may find ways to access other materials as well.
Students, staff, and volunteers need to have training and an understanding of Internet use and responsibility before utilizing the Internet. Use of the Internet is a privilege, not a right. Visiting inappropriate sites, or downloading inappropriate files, will result in the cancellation of that privilege. Federal regulation mandates that you protect and conserve government property and not use such property for other than authorized purposes. The Internet at school is government property.
In accordance with DoDEA Administrative Instruction 6600.01 "Computer Access and Internet Policy" the parents of all students in grades K-12 are required to sign the Student Network Use Agreement whenever a student registers for school. The agreement covers the use of the school LAN, Internet, and electronic mail (email). The signed agreements are maintained at the school in each student's file. Students at SCHOOL using the Internet will be under the supervision of an Internet trained teacher/information specialist, or volunteer whenever accessing the Internet. The information specialist or teacher determines permission for students to print Internet information.
