Acceptable Use Policy

 

Students will have many opportunities to participate in Richland Two's electronic communication systems. Computers are used throughout the curriculum to support and enhance learning in all areas. The Internet is one of the electronic resources available to students. Parents who do not want their children to use the Internet at school must write a letter to the principal to inform him of that decision.

Along with these opportunities also comes responsibility. It is important that students and parents read the Acceptable Use Policy and discuss these requirements together. Inappropriate use will result in disciplinary action including permanent removal from computer use.
