Each student must sign and follow the BCPSS Acceptable Use Policy (AUP). You and your parents agree that you will conduct yourself properly on a school computer. Without this signed agreement, you cannot use our computers.
Basically, the Acceptable Use Policy keeps you focused on your work, and keeps the computers in good condition for the next person.
You do not have the right to use a city computer. It is a privilege that can be taken away if you do not follow the Acceptable Use policy.
