You are being given access to the Edinburg Consolidated Independent School District's electronic communications system. Through this system, you will be able to communicate with other schools, colleges, organizations, and people around the world through the Internet and other electronic information systems/networks. You will have access to hundreds of databases, libraries, and computer services all over the world.

With this opportunity comes responsibility. It is important that you read the District policy, administrative regulations, and agreement form and ask questions if you need help in under-standing them. Inappropriate system use will result in the loss of the privilege to use this educational tool.

Please note that the Internet is a network of many types of communication and information networks. It is possible that you may run across some material you might find objectionable. While the District will take reasonable steps to restrict access to such material, it is not possible to absolutely prevent such access. It will be your responsibility to follow the rules for appropriate use.

Rules for Appropriate Use:

You may be assigned an individual account. You are responsible for not sharing the password for that account with others.

You will be held responsible at all times for the proper use of your account, and the District may suspend or revoke your access if you violate the rules.

Remember that people who receive e-mail from you with a school address might think your message represents the school's point of view.

Inappropriate Use:

Using the system for any illegal purpose;

Borrowing someone's account without permission;

Downloading or using copyrighted information without permission from the copyright holder;

Posting messages or accessing materials that are abusive, obscene, sexually oriented, threatening, harassing, damaging to another's reputation, or illegal;

Wasting school resources through the improper use of the computer system; and

Gaining unauthorized access to restricted information or resources.

Consequences for inappropriate Use:

Suspension of access to the system;

Revocation of the computer system account; or

Other disciplinary or legal action, in accordance with District policy and applicable laws.

I understand that my computer use is not private and that the District will monitor my activity on the computer system.

I have read the District's electronic communications system policy and administrative regulations and agree to abide by their provisions. In consideration for the privilege of using the District's electronic communications system and in consideration for having access to the public networks, I hereby release the District, its operators, and any institutions with which they are affiliated from any and all claims and damages of any nature arising from my use of, or inability to use, the system, including, without limitation, the type of damages identified in the District's policy and administrative regulations.
