 The  Acceptable Use Policy for Students

 
 
 

Note to teachers: Before the students use classroom and NFCSD computers for the first time each school year, please review the grade level AUP with them.  If appropriate, have the students sign the AUP. Also, you will find many resources aligned to the grade level AUPs below for your classroom use.

 
 
 
Some Thoughts Regarding AUPs from CommonSenseMedia.org
 
     An acceptable use policy (AUP) is a policy that outlines, in writing, how a school or district expects its community members to behave with technology. Similar to a Terms of Service document, an AUP defines publicly what is deemed acceptable behavior from users of hardware and information systems such as the Internet and any applicable networks.

     Today’s educators have the tough job of maintaining the delicate balance of protecting students while providing access to the digital world. Educators need to be comprehensive yet not limiting when creating a stimulating but safe learning environment. An AUP is a first step in framing these opportunities.

    Remember,  that even though this AUP is School Board approved, it is only as strong as your commitment to enforce it. An AUP needs the school’s whole community support as it can come into play when well-intentioned filters and monitoring systems fail.
