Acceptable Use Policy Overview/Directory Information/Photograph
Parents and Students,
The Edina Public Schools Acceptable Use Policy was developed to explain the rights and responsibilities of students using electronic resources such as the computer network, district computers, personal computers on school grounds as well as Web sites that extend the classroom experience. The general ideas in the policy reflect the importance of responsible use:
- Privacy - Students will protect their privacy and respect the privacy of others.
- Property - Students will protect their property and respect the property of others.
- Appropriate Use - Students will use technology in constructive ways and in ways which do not break the rules of their family, faith, school, or government.(1)
Once you have reviewed these concepts with your student, you can return to Schoolview to verify that you have read them. To view the entire Board Policy 634, please click here.
