Email, Internet and network use by students shall not be considered confidential and may be
monitored at any time by designated staff to ensure appropriate use. Any effort intended to avoid
this monitoring will be considered a violation of this policy.
Each user is responsible to backup his/her data. It is a requirement that all users have their own backup
device. Recovery of lost data is at the user’s expense.

responsibility for limiting any student’s access to such material. If a student accidentally accesses
inappropriate material, he/she should immediately notify a teacher.
