The District provides computer access and access to the Internet, digital communication and collaboration tools, and online learning spaces critical to acquiring these skills. However, failure to adhere to district policies, procedures, and guidelines for the use of district technology resources may result in revocation or restriction of access privileges and/or disciplinary action as defined in District policy Article VIII.A.24. Electronic Devices and Acceptable Use of Technology, school electronic device policies, and these terms & conditions. Misuse or illegal activities may result in administrative consequences and/or referral to law enforcement as appropriate.
