What is an Acceptable Use Policy?
An acceptable use policy (AUP) is a document stipulating constraints and practices that a user must agree to for access to technology devices and the Internet. An AUP is a legal document in the corporate world that sets the rules for technology usage. On the school level an acceptable technology use policy is a contract signed by students and their parents as well as their teachers agreeing to the terms and use of technology in the classroom such as computers, Chromebooks, iPads, and the Internet. An AUP includes rules for access and online behavior as well as penalties for breaking the rules.
