Narragansett School System is
pleased to be able to offer direct Internet access to students and staff. Students may access the Internet in the
What is possible?
Access to the Internet will enable students to explore thousands of libraries, databases, museums and to participate in online projects with Internet users from around the world. While the purposes of our school are to use Internet resources for constructive educational goals, students may find ways to access inappropriate material. We believe that the benefits to students from access to the Internet in the form of information resources and opportunities for collaboration exceed the disadvantages.
What is expected?
Students are responsible for appropriate behavior on the school's computer network just as they are in the classroom and other school environments. The user is personally responsible for his/her actions in accessing and utilizing the school's computer resources. Students are advised never to access, keep, or send anything that they would not want their parents or teachers to see. The use of the Internet is a privilege, not a right, and may be revoked if abused.
Ultimately, parents and guardians of minors are responsible for setting and conveying the standards children should follow when using these resources. Please discuss the above guidelines with your child, sign below and return to school.
I will follow the Narragansett School System Computer Network Acceptable Use Policy by being a responsible computer network user in my school.
