Acceptable Technology Use Policy




What is Acceptable Use?   Image result for acceptable use policy 

Acceptable Use is defined as the rules established by the owner or manager of a network, Website, or computer system to restrict the ways in which it is accessed and used (Wikipedia). With the bounty of information at our fingertips, it is imperative for all 21st century schools to establish and enforce rules to protect students and teach them to become responsible digital citizens.​​​



Acceptable Technology Use Policies are a collection of rules and expectations established by an organization to guide the ways in which technology is used and accessed. It is important for schools to have these policies in place due to the everyday incorporation of technology in the 21st century classroom. These policies are used to outline appropriate or acceptable uses of technology and provide consequences for violating the acceptable use policy within the school. Each school should have their personal Acceptable Use Policy for faculty, parents, and students.
