Acceptable Use Policy
The Forest Hills Public School District provides its students and staff access to a multitude of technology resources. The District believes that these resources provide incredible opportunities to enhance learning and improve communication within our community and with the global community beyond our campus. The advantages of having access to these resources are far greater than any potential downside. However, with the privilege of access comes great responsibility for students, teachers, staff and families. The District expects all community members to exercise appropriate personal responsibility in their use of these resources. Our policies are intended to promote the most effective, safe, productive, and instructionally sound uses of networked information and communication tools. In accordance with Forest Hills Public Schools Board Policy 7540.03, the district makes every effort to protect its students from exposure to Internet materials that are harmful or explicit. The District maintains a system of Internet content filtering devices and software controls that meet federal standards established in the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA).
