Internet access will be provided to students in accordance with the terms of this
6
policy. Internet access from school computers is reserved solely for educational
7
purposes. Use by outside groups is prohibited. Use by student clubs and organizations
8
is limited to those times when the Internet access points are not in use for instruction,
9
and shall be limited to educational purposes and governed by this policy. Access to
10
the Internet will be under the direction and supervision of the staff assigned to the

transmission and receipt of e-mail. Use of e-mail is limited to school district purposes.
14
Every computer in the district having Internet access shall not be operated by a
15
student unless Internet access from the computer is subject to filtering software. Such
16
filtering software shall be designed and it shall operate so that images which are
17
obscene, pornographic or harmful to minors shall not be displayed. Such filtering
18
software shall also be designed and it shall operate so that images or language which
19
advocate or promote violence or hatred against particular individuals or groups of
20
individuals or promotes the superiority of one racial, ethnic, or religious group over
21
another shall not be displayed. For purposes of this policy, the phrase harmful to minors
22
means an picture, image, graphic image file, or other visual depiction that, taken as a
23
whole, and with respect to minors, appeals to prurient interest in nudity, sex or
24
excretion; depicts, describes or represents in a patently offensive way with respect to
25
what is suitable for minors an actual or simulated sex act or sexual contact, actual or
26
simulated normal or perverted sexual acts, or a lewd exhibition of the genitals and,
27
taken as a whole, lacks serious literary, artistic, political or scientific value as to minors.

46

47
Opinions, advice, services, and all other information expressed on line are those of
48
the on=line authors and not of the school district. The Internet contains information
49
pertaining to a variety of subjects. Not all of this information is accurate or reliable,
50
particularly where the advice of medical, legal, accounting or other professionals would
51
be appropriate. Users are advised not to rely on advice found on the Internet. The school
52
district is not responsible for such advice.
53
The school district does not guarantee or imply that access to the Internet will always
54
be available when students want access or that the software provided by the district
55
will always work as intended. The school district is not responsible for failures in the
56
operation or technical functioning of the Internet or the computers or software used to
57
access the Internet.
