The Board of Education recognizes that it is important for students and staff members to have access to electronic-based research tools and master skills for their application to learning, problem solving, production of work, and presentation of information. The Board also recognizes that while these resources represent extraordinary learning opportunities and enriching educational materials, they also offer persons with illegal or unethical motives avenues for reaching students, teachers, parent(s)/guardian(s) and members of the community. Additionally, these resources present tempting opportunities for users to explore areas that are either confidential, have restricted access or are inappropriate to the classroom or workplace. It is the policy of the District to: (a) prevent user access over its computer network to, or transmission of, inappropriate material via Internet, electronic mail, or other forms of direct electronic communications; (b) prevent unauthorized access and other unlawful online activity; (c) prevent unauthorized online disclosure, use, or dissemination of personal identification information of minors; and (d) comply with the Children's Internet Protection Act [Pub. L. No. 106-554 and 47 USC 254(h)].

In compliance with the Children's Internet Protection Act, each year, all District students will receive Internet safety training which will educate students about appropriate online behavior, including interacting with other individuals on social networking sites and in chat rooms, and cyberbullying awareness and response.
