The Superintendent shall encourage use of the District local and wide area networks to promote educational excellence by facilitating academic achievement, resource sharing, innovation, and communication. The use of all technology resources is a privilege, not a right.

The administration is directed to develop regulations which comply with all federal and state laws and regulations governing schools and computer use. The regulation also shall insure proper use of District networks and the Internet by students, staff members, and members of the community.
