As the parent or guardian, I have read the UBSD Acceptable Use Policy and I have discussed it with my child. I understand that computer access is provided for educational purposes in keeping with the academic goals of UBSD, and that student use for any other purpose is inappropriate. I recognize it is impossible for UBSD to restrict access to all inappropriate materials, and I will not hold the school responsible for materials acquired on the school network. I understand that children’s computer activities at home should be supervised as they can affect the academic environment at school. *
