Internet Rules and Regulations
Internet - Rules and Regulations
(as adopted July 13, 1998 – a complete copy of this policymay be obtained by contacting the school office)

The use of the ISD 2397 system and access to use of the Internet is a privilege, not a right. Depending on the nature and degree of the violation, unacceptable use of the school district system or the Internet may result in one or more of the following consequences:  suspension or cancellation of use or access privileges; payments for damages and repairs; discipline under other appropriate school district policies, including suspension, expulsion,  exclusion or termination of employment; or civil or criminal liability under other applicable laws.

Internet Use Agreement

The proper use of the Internet, and the educational value to be gained from proper Internet use, is the joint responsibility of students, parents and employees of the school district. Outside of school, parents bear responsibility for the same guidance of Internet use as they exercise with information sources such as television, telephones, radio, movies and other possibly offensive media. Parents are responsible for monitoring their student’s use of the school district system and of the Internet if the student is accessing the school district system from home or a remote location.

The Internet Use Agreement form must be read and signed by the user and parent or guardian upon successful completion of the user training program. A use license will be issued after signing the agreement. 

Limited Expectation of Privacy

By authorizing use of the school district system, the school district does not relinquish control over materials on the system or contained in files on the system. Users should expect only limited privacy in the contents of personal files on the school district system. Parents have the right at any time to investigate or review the contents of their child’s files and e-mail files. Parents have the right to request the termination of their child’s individual account at any time.
