The Anchorage School District promotes an open, cooperative exchange of ideas. A digital district must also educate its students, faculty and staff about how computer abuse can interfere with the exchange of ideas that is integral to learning. We are all responsible for the well being of the computing, network and information resources that we use.
ASD offers staff and students access to the Internet from within the district network, according to the ASD Internet Guidelines. All staff and students who wish to have access to the Internet from the district network must also have an Internet User Agreement on file and must abide by the Internet Guidelines.
Highlights of the Internet Guidelines
All Internet Web-based content accessed through computers connected to the district network is filtered through this system. See Section 8.3 - Filtering Software for more information.
In order to ensure the safety of our students, it is important that we follow guidelines concerning the publication of student information on student, staff, department and school home pages. See Section 2.4 - Publishing Student Information on the Web for more information.
